Blackadore Caye is a small island in Belize, west of Ambergris Caye, in the Atlantic Ocean, not far from the Belize Barrier Reef.


It has been bought by American actor Leonardo DiCaprio who intends to develop a highly sustainable eco-resort on the island.[1] DiCaprio had originally discovered the island on a vacation in 2004 while staying at the ultra-luxury resort Cayo Espanto. DiCaprio purchased Blackadore Caye with Cayo Espanto owner Jeff Gram.

DiCaprio's plan for the island involves the restorative development of an eco-resort. The vision of the project is to increase the biological health of species on the island and surrounding waters while serving as a luxury eco-resort to island guests. Sustainability goals include the resort to be powered completely by renewable energy. [2]
