Leonardo DiCaprio Buys Island in Belize to Build Eco-Resort

Nearly ten years ago, Leonardo DiCaprio had a very forward thinking idea and purchased a 104 acre unpopulated island off the coast of Belize.  Whether his intentions laid here since the beginning is besides the point, eco-tourism is not only good for the economy, but it can be beneficial to the environment at the same time, or at least better attempt to preserve locations that need preserving.

Belize is a beautiful location, but it didn’t see eco-tourism until very recently, unlike places like Costa Rica, where they got in on eco-tourism early and were able to preserve much of its natural beauty.  The specific island near Belize in question is the beautiful Blackadore Caye, and it’s entirely unpopulated.  Preserving the beauty of this island is a good way to remember what all of Belize used to look like, and is a great location for an eco-resort.

Leonardo DiCaprio is partnering with an eco-conscious developer by the name of Delos to design and construct the resort on the island.  With the likes of Delos behind this project, it should turn out very well.  Business solutions that preserve the environment while also making people happy and other people money are things that we consider to be good here at RareDelights.  The resort is supposed to open sometime in 2018.
