You won't find more charming and sincere hosts than Kate and Ian Morton...and their staff of locals. Absolutely great for people interested in natural history, especially plants, birds, and insects (the interesting kind, not the kind that bother you). The rooms are very well maintained. Hickatee gives you an out-of-the-way experience in an out-of-the-way part of Belize. However, it is... More

We stayed 5 nights in late February and really were enchanted with the beautiful jungle oasis. Ian and Kate are wonders! We drove down from Belize City and toured ourselves around the area and Ian was a wealth of info on things to do and places to see. Loved drumming up a storm with Ian and other guests led by...

We stayed at Hickatee for 9 days enjoying all aspects of Ian and Kate's fabulous hospitality. We sometimes walked into town (best done before it gets too hot) and all the locals waved and said hello. We walked the Hickatee trails during the day and at night (!) sighting activity from agoutis and pacas. In the afternoon we'd mostly be... More

We stayed 2 days in Hickatee. If we knew, how lovely this place is, we would have booked some nights more! The cottages are situated near Punta Gorda. It's a short ride downtown , but you can take one of a bikes, which a provided for free in the cottages. Kate and Ian are very caring and thoughtful hosts. The... More

Hickatee Cottages are one of those places you tend to read about and go no that can not be true. I am here to tell you its true in this case, this is very like an oasis in desert but in this case its an oasis in a jungle. PG is one of those undiscovered little gems and this could... More

Quaint and charming cottages in a jungle setting. The hosts, Kate and Ian were top notch in the care of the guests and sharing their love and knowledge of Belize. They reconfirmed flights and travel arrangements without us even asking. Ian picked us up and dropped us back off at the airport and even entertained us with local drumming! They... More

I've been on the road for 6 weeks and Hickatee has been the only bad spot to date. The cottages are superb. I've read several reviews complaining of the excessive rules by the owners, which I think are unfair. What I didn't see in any of the reviews were the friggin' demon flies that kept us hostage in the room.... More

Kate and Ian were wonderful! The cottages and grounds are lovely. Excellent meals on the veranda with other guests was a highlight. Hickatee cottages make an excellent base from which to explore the many adventures available in the southern Belize area. Being out in the jungle but near to town was perfect. We saw many birds and a jaguarundi crossed... More
