Word got around that Mexican theater and movie actor Luis Gerardo Mendez was vacationing in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize, after he posted a picture on his Instagram account of him riding a bicycle on the basketball court at the Boca del Rio Park.
It was last week Sunday, September, 14, that Luis posted his first Instagram picture hinting that he was ready to go scuba diving. But it was until Tuesday, September 16, that he posted a picture of himself riding a bicycle at the Boca del Rio Park basketball court with the caption “La major cancha del mundo” (the best court in the world) with the hashtags #Belice and #San Pedro that his followers knew he was in Belize.
Today he posted a picture of nurse sharks at Hol Chan Marine Reserve’s Shark Ray Alley hinting that he is still on vacationing on Ambergris Caye. Luis’ latest movie role is that of Estanislao Shilinsky in the romantic biopic Cantinflas that premiers in Mexico this week. The movie pays homage to one of Mexico’s most beloved and legendary comedians and actors – Mario Moreno. The movie is loaded with well-known actors which includes telenovela superstars like Barbara Mori and Ana Layevska, American actor and Sopranos start Michael Imperioli and Oscar Jaenada (from Pirates of the Caribbean) who plays the titular role of Cantinflas.
Looks like another celebrity has fallen in love with Belize!
