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...

Eduardo is a fantastic chef with years of experience in the food industry. Allison is on top of all the property logistics. A nice combo. A nice large porch for happy hours...

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...

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!

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.
