My wife and I spent two wonderful nights at Hickatee, where the morning coffee and complimentary breakfasts were a delight, as was the cooked breakfast we had one morning and the dinners. Both Kate and Ian made us feel at home, and never rushed when answering one of our many questions about their lodge, or the PG area in general.... More

I stayed at Hickatee last weekend and it was a great experience. Thank you Ian and Kate for you hospitality! You have such a beautiful place and it was great to be in the middle of the jungle, lying in bed in my little cottage and hearing the Howler Monkeys in the distance. What other place can offer that?

Ian and Kate are wonderful! The main building and cottages are so well-done, but the main attraction is the hiking trails they have on the property. You're right in the jungle! I'll never forget the sound of the howler monkeys. Really amazing.

What a wonderful place! We were at Hickatee for three nights, having stayed in other parts of Belize and it was the very best accommodation we had experienced, and we had stayed in some nice places! It is a small (6 rooms), but a very special place to stay. The bungalows are well spaced out in the beautifully landscaped area... More

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
