This is a perfect place to escape stress, to sit and listen to the sounds of the rainforest , to take nature walks or cycle in to the fun and funky town of Punta Gorda. The hosts are wonderful, the food is excellent and there is a real environmental policy - I could not find a thing to fault.

Our experience at Hickatee was amazing! The new owners are energetic and committed to creating a seamless adventure for their guest. We were picked up at the local airport, arriving in time for a delicious dinner. We enjoyed coffee delivered to our cottage and breakfast on the porch looking out into the jungle scenery. The rooms are clean with nice...

I spent 3 nights at the Hickatee Cottages in November in order to visit the local Mayan ruins at Lubaantun and Nim Lii Punit. My cottage was charming and had everything I needed. The grounds were beautiful. Breakfast was included and was very good. Dinner was extra but again very good The owners were very friendly and helpful.

Arrived at Hickatee Cottages second week of November. Having never visited this area of Belize I was very excited to see the jungle and the town of Punta Gorda. I was not disappointed, I found the cottages as tantalizing as advertised. Beautifully decorated, very clean, and comfortable. The jungle trees and vegetation on the property were breath taking. A picture...

We had a most relaxing and delightful 2-night stay at Hickatee Cottages just outside Punta Gorda, Toledo, Belize. Hickatee Cottages are in a lovingly groomed setting surrounded by acres of virtually unspoiled jungle. The gravel paths connecting the cottages with the reception/bar/restaurant/lounge, and the outdoor patio wind through lush plantings of native trees, shrubs, and flowers – many of which...

We arrived at Hickatee Cottages a bit early, but the new owners, Alli and Eduardo, got us settled in with no fuss. We stayed in the Honeymoon Cottage which is set off a bit from the other cottages. This is the most expensive accommodation they have, but still a great value and moderate cost. Although it is only about a...

We stayed in the Honeymoon suite and just loved it. Perfect setting. Great hosts and wonderful meals. Eduardo and Alli go out of their way to accommodate anyone. I was able to do the short walk into the jungle and cross a log over a creek and look for birds, butterflies, moths and Howler monkeys. Just loved this hideaway from...

If being away from the hustle and bustle of life mixed with jungle like surroundings this may be your place. Near Punta Gorda for easy access but away from town for quiet times. They’re off the grid and are solar powered. No A/C so something to think about if hot, humid & steamy is not your cup of tea. We...
