There's also two miles of private white-sand beach, Playa Barrigona, which sees olive ridley sea turtles travel thousands of miles across the Pacific each year to lay their eggs.

According to homesandproperty.co.uk, the Hollywood star found the property while location scouting for his film Apocalpyto, about the Mayan kingdom, back in 2006.
