We really cannot praise Hickatee highly enough. The cottages themselves are lovely inside and out, and the grounds — cultivated spaces at the core, untamed jungle beyond — are beautiful and bursting with plant, animal, and, yes, insect life. The food, too, is fantastic — freshly baked bread and muffins for breakfast; coffee brought to your doorstep in the morning.... What makes... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Hickatee Cottages. Not knowing what to expect during our week-long stay, we were blown away by the entire experience. As the co-owner Kate so aptly put it, "we don't have tourists here, we have visitors". You will get to experience life in Punta Gorda using the beautiful Hickatee Cottages as your home... More

We stayed at Hickatee for 4 nights and really enjoyed the beautiful setting. We had the place nearly to ourselves due to traveling in low season. We were serenaded every day by the howler monkeys which reside around the resort. Ian and Kate, the owners, were very accommodating of all our requests, found us wonderful tour guides to tour the...

Back again after a year, this time dragging along my husband, because 'you just HAVE to experience this place!'. Yep. He agreed. Magical. The trails make you feel like a big tough jungle conqueror - without actually getting you lost, scratched or bitten! The naturally gardenia-scented plunge pool is more relaxing than a swedish massage, the cottage was roomy and... More

Hickatee is slightly distant from the town but there is so much to do there that we would have been more than happy to stay there for several days. It is an absolutely beautiful setting in the jungle, with immaculate wooden chalets set apart from each other; with a little plunge pool in the centre. Everywhere is spotlessly clean and... More

Ian and Kate have created a very beautiful, clean, comfortable, interesting and unique place. We loved our stay. The room was lovely, clean, nicely appointed, spacious, cool, bug free (which is not at all easy in this location). Ian is very enthusiastic and engaging. He is interested in everything and loves to share his fascination with the guests, be it... More

We loved our stay at Hickatee in 2012 so there were no surprises this time - wonderful welcome, terrific customer service and attention to detail, great jungly surroundings (walking stick bugs! howler monkeys!) and an unexpected upgrade from the charming little Den to the opulent Honeymoon Suite. We stayed 4 nights so had 3 full days: 1) a local bus... More

Spent 3 nights at Hickatee in March. Comfortable accommodation, well maintained with thoughtful touches. Ian, Kate and the staff looked after me so well during my stay - great advice on the area, on day trips and the flora and fauna. Excellent dinner too!

We just returned from a family trip to Belize. Took our 10 year old and 12 year old. Spent 5 days in Punta Gorda and stayed at Hickatee the whole time. Ian and his staff were wonderful hosts. Clean and comfortable accommodations. The little dipping pool was great for an afternoon attitude adjustment on a very hot day. Ian provided... More

Punta Gorda was a huge disappointment to me. Hickatee Cottages took some of the sting out of the disappointment but still, driving to the site from town past the squalor, dead dogs, burning garbage along the road was tough to take. Not their fault of course but I'm not sure how to see past the grime and grinding poverty of... More
