Hickatee Cottages is a great base from which to explore the Toledo District of Southern Belize. Intentionally small and decidedly quiet, we have just six rooms in Caribbean-style buildings, ranging in size and price from the smallest Hickatee Den up to the 'Sweet' Suite, the largest and most private of our rooms.

Each room has its own entrance and en-suite facilities, is furnished with locally made furniture, and is solar-powered. All our rooms are well ventilated with fully screened windows, and our solar power system allows for ceiling fans to be operated through the night.

Our room rates include:

> free transfer for guests arriving at PG airstrip

> light continental breakfast (homemade breads/muffins, fresh fruit, local jams, tea, coffee and fruit juices)

> complimentary WI-FI

> guest-only splash pool access

> access to Hickatee Cottages grounds and nature trails

> complimentary use of cruiser bikes to explore the local area

> typically, free Garifuna Drumming on a Wednesday evening*

> complimentary visit to Fallen Stones Butterfly Farm*

COTTAGE ROOMS (Detached Cottage, Duplex Cottages)

1 double and 1 single bed per room

sleeps up to 3 adults

Hickatee first opened with these three original rooms, each with a similar layout.


Each room has both a double and single bed to provide flexible sleeping arrangements, a small sitting area with a couch, and features a covered verandah with hammock and seat for you to relax and enjoy the tropical plants and wildlife.

The Detached Cottage room, as its name suggests, is a stand-alone unit for extra privacy.

The Duplex Unit has two adjoining rooms in the same building and is popular with friends and family traveling together, but also adapts well for guests traveling alone.


from US$115 per night


Single occupancy from US$85 per night

Double occupancy from US$95 per night


1 queen bed, sleeps up to 2 adults

The Hickatee Den is our smallest detached unit, light and airy, with glimpses of the splash pool through the nearby mango tree.

With a queen bed and small front sun deck, it works well for couples who want the privacy of a detached unit but don't need the extra lounging space or verandah of the other rooms. If you plan on spending much of your time out exploring the District, and/or want a queen bed, then this is probably the room for you!


from US$95 per night


1 queen bed, sleeps up to 2 adults

Our newest and final addition at Hickatee is the Wilby Suite, named after a long construction time to avoid noise to our guests. It 'wilby' completed soon!

The Wilby Suite is a spacious detached unit with a queen bed, separated from a lounge area by a large curtained archway. The small front deck leads to a garden area with hammock and seats, a private Gazebo and planted with butterfly-attracting plants.


from US$135 per night


1 queen bed, sleeps up to 2 adults

Our Honeymoon Suite ("The Sweet") offers something a little more special for couples.

Originally built as the Hickatee Founder's home, the Sweet is the largest and most private of our cottages, with a large verandah for enjoying a hammock and porch chairs, as well as a small deck at the back of the house surrounded by the jungle setting.


The Sweet offers a spacious accommodation with a queen-sized bed in a separate bedroom, an over-sized bathroom and a large lounge with a vaulted ceiling and locally made rattan furniture.


from US$145 per night

Our prices are quoted in US$ for easy translation, but deposits are processed locally in Belize dollars.

A non-refundable deposit for the first night of your stay is required to guarantee your booking (VISA or Mastercard). Full, final payment is processed at check-out.


We work very hard to meet and exceed our guests' expectations, but it's important that those expectations are realistic. 

> Off-Grid Experience: Off-Grid does not necessarily translate to jungle camping, but at Hickatee we offer the natural surroundings which you will not find in a luxury hotel.  We have sufficient battery power for en-suite fans and lighting as well as hot water for relaxing showers, but we do not allow the use of hairdryers or other high-powered devices.

> Unpaved Roads: While we are only 1.5 miles from downtown Punta Gorda, it can get muddy and our roads develop potholes. This, however, is the trade-off for a pretty jungle location, complete with resident howler monkeys. 

> Natural Breeze: Hickatee prides ourselves on offering a great value for your money.  Our cottages are fully screened to allow for the fresh, nature breeze to flow through. With this jungle experience, our cottages do not include A/C. 

> Safety & Accessibility:  Hickatee Cottages is located on a relatively flat ground, and all paths are of gravel rock material. Each cottage has approximately six steps with safety railing and are within a short walking distance of all facility needs. However, due to the nature of the location, Hickatee Cottages is not wheelchair accessible.

> Jungle Flyers. The jungle offers beautiful flora and fauna, but this also comes with the various insects of the jungle. We recommend insect repellent for those more sensitive to our winged friends.
