What makes Hickatee particularly special is the hosts, Allison and Eduardo. They are incredibly warm, friendly and welcoming and will do everything to ensure you have a great stay. They are...

Thank you so much for the kind review Edward! We are so glad that you were able to not only enjoy the jungle experience, but also embrace the other experiences that Toledo has to offer - the Garifuna cultural drumming, the Fallen Stones working butterfly farm and even the local transportation to the villages while staying with us.

We stayed at Hickatee for 3 days and loved every minute. The cabins are beautifully finished and have everything you need. They are sympathetically nestled in the forest where you can watch the wildlife from your deck, including the troop of local howler monkeys. Eduardo and Alli are fantastic hosts and make you feel immediately welcome as well as cooking...

Hickatee Cottages was fantastic - an oasis in the jungle. Our cottage was one of the smaller ones and simply lovely. Our hosts Ali and Eduardo were the perfect innkeepers. We ate 3 of our 4 dinners with them and the food was well prepared, plentiful and simply delicious. Should we get back to Punta Gorda, we will definitely stay...
