Ricky Martin buys island for $8 million - Singer Ricky Martin is one of the few celebrities in the world who owns an island. According to Mexican newspaper El Universal, Martin bought an island just off the coast of Rio de Janeiro for a cool $8 million.
There’s nothing that quite separates the rich and famous from the rest of us than private islands. The private island in its very nature is exclusive– out in the middle of a body of water where most can’t reach it…
Furthermore, private islands are typically set in a kind of luxurious backdrop like the Bahamas or somewhere tropical. Even if it is a private island somewhere up on a Canadian lake, it has all the ingredients of a nice vacation. Beautiful natural elements, water, peace and quiet. Right?
Beyond that, you probably feel like the king of your own country. While it may seem like something that only the very rich and famous can do, there are plenty of islands for sale on the internet that anybody with the right amount of cash can buy. Some are as cheap as $90,000. If you’d like to just feel like an island-owner for a week or two, consider renting a private island. Get all the pleasures of island-life without the drudgery that comes with island-ownership (if there are any– falling coconuts?)
