We got the honeymoon suite and we loved it! Ian would bring us breakfast each morning and we would sit out on the porch and drink tea and eat bread. Thank you Ian and Kate! This was a great experience and we loved every moment of it. My girlfriend, Stacy, and I also had dinner there once and it was... More

A stay at the Hickatee Cottages is a must for anyone who is fascinated by the myriad forms of plant and animal life resident in the tropical jungle. The accommodations are simple, clean and well-maintained. They live off-the-grid and do a great job of being an ecolodge. The proprietors, Ian and Kate, are very nice people who truly care for...

It is their personal touch that makes this place the excellent destination it is. The setting is spectacular, the cottages are well-appointed and comfortable, and the meals are excellent. We would...

Our first time in Belize and our first destination in the country. We were told by Kate & Ian that we had been upgraded to the honeymoon suite, which considering we had been married 37 years came as a surprise, or perhaps it was because we were the only guests. It rained solidly the whole 3 days we were there,... More

Kate and Ian's personal touches make Hickatee cottages a fantastic place to stay. Ian arranged all of our tours with local tour guides and we had fabulous experiences. They have a great relationship with the locals and Ian was able to show us a traditional dance only performed on Christmas day by the indigenous people. Normally tourists would not be... More

The howler monkeys and... More

Andy and I stayed again at Hickatee Cottages. This place is absolutely amazing. Owners Ian and Kate are fantastic. Never have I experienced such personal attention. Kate's cooking is something everyone needs to taste. It's beautifully done with elegance. Rooms are impeccably clean. We will surely return again. Thanks again Kate and Ian for a fantastic two days.

If you have never had a jungle type holiday then this is nice starter. Not a lots of wildlife to see but it's still nice for a few days. I'm comparing the wildlife to Costa Rica and the Amazon Rainforest. The cottages are lovely, spotless, air conditioned and have gorgeous hammocks to laze in outside. The gardens are beautiful and...

I stayed at Hickatee Cottages for four weeks in January 2015. The owners at Hickatee are exceptionally accommodating, gracious and well-informed about all aspects of Belize. That includes the customs, culture, business, plants, animals and sites to visit. The cottages are surrounded by jungle and are connected by beautifully landscaped grounds. The trees, bushes, flowers--all plant species--are discretely labelled and... More
