I stayed at Hickatee Cottages for a weekend between my dive weeks with ReefCI. After the activity of my first week in Belize staying at Hickatee was just what I needed to relax. The accomodation was spacious and of an extremely high standard. Breakfast options were great and the three course meal I had on the Sunday evening (cooked by Kate, one of the owners) was delicious.
Both Ian and Kate were perfect hosts, really fascinating people to talk to and great to see how they have adopted Belize as their home, and just how much they contribute back to it.
I cycled into Punta Gorda twice (with bikes provided by Hickatee) during the weekend which was a very pleasant way to see the sights. It would not be possible to do this in the evening though as it does get dark early - however taxis (use Miss Flo) are relatively cheap, and if you know where to go or who to call are easy to get hold of. It costs BZ$20 to get from Hickatee to Punta Gorda, which is approximately £7.
