Absolutely the best in Punta Gorda, and maybe all of Belize! Delicious homemade food, outstanding customer service, and cozy and comfortable accommodations - all nestled within 60 acres of protected rainforest. Ally and Eduardo go above and beyond to make sure your stay is perfect and see to all of your needs immediately. I look forward to returning someday!

We stayed at Hickatee for 2 nights and it was the best experience we had during our 10days getting around trip in Belize. The rooms are clean, no air-conditioning but you won't need it in the Dschungel, everything is well kept, clean and cosy. Kate and Ian are great, very helpful, interested in your well-being, they make the stay at...

Thank you very much for staying with us Karsten! We are so glad you and Judith had an opportunity to travel to southern Belize and explore the area. We also enjoyed preparing our plantain fritters for you both, one of our favorite selections from the PG market! All the best, Alli & Eduardo

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.

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.
