Hollywood heartthrob buys caye

Story PictureHe visited Belize as a tourist–in fact, our camera once caught him by accident as he walked through the airport incognito–but now it seems that the next time Hollywood heartthrob Leo DiCaprio comes to Belize it will be as the owner of his own island. International press reports indicate that the thirty year old star of “Titanic” and “The Aviator” has purchased the one hundred and four acre Blackadore Caye and plans to turn it into a top class eco-resort. The island, which lies to the west of Ambergris Caye, is long and narrow, able to easily accommodate its own airstrip. Management, according to the press reports, will be in cooperation with the nearby high end resort, Cayo Espanto. News Five contacted Emerald Futures Real Estate, the local company that brokered the deal. A spokesperson said that they were not aware that the buyer was DiCaprio, but are extremely happy that such a well-known figure saw it fit to make such a significant investment in Belize.
