Believe me, if I could give them 6 out of 5 I would! This place is more than excellent. By far the best place we stayed during our two week trip through Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras. Kate and Ian are fantastic hosts. Their place is spotless. We stayed in the Den for 3 nights and we loved it. We called Ian (one of the owners along with Kate) the day before we arrived and he told us that we were going to be the only guests. August is the low season, make sure you book ahead of time if you go during the high season. Upon our arrival in PG, we went to the Tourist Info Center, and the very helpful lady working there called Ian to let him know we had arrived. He picked us up and took us to Hickatee (their place is about 2 miles away from PG). Both Ian and Kate have a lot of information about all kind of things you can do around Toledo district. It is like having a tourist information representative right in the cottages! They called different places for us, and helped us with the local bus schedules. When we told them that we were going to Livingston after PG, Ian called the boat company to book our seats, all these free of charge. He even drove us to the pier (again, no charge) after we checked out. They also have free bikes for guests, we used them every day to go to PG. Also, within their property their is 2km loop trail through the jungle! Lastly, breakfast, included in the price, is very good. I've had the fortune to travel to over 40 countries so far, and I don't think I've ever had a better accommodation experience than at Hickatee.
