What can I say when words do not suffice? Two nights simply was not enough and wish I could have stayed longer. Wonderful hosts - genuine, warm, friendly and incredibly welcoming and will go out of their way to ensure you have the best stay possible.
Hickatee is only about a 10 minute drive from Punta Gorda town centre but feels a world away. The cottages are in a stunning jungle setting - so beautiful & tranquil.
Many lovely little touches to make it extra special. Plus a very comfy hammock on the front porch of your cottage.
No TV's (thank goodness!) but lots of books and board games. A lovely little plunge pool, a couple of jungle walks, heaps of bird & bug life (that said I didn't experience any bugs that bit me and I didn't use any repellent either)!
Great wholesome cooking by Kate and if you're really cheeky (or just lazy & indulgent!) Ian will bring freshly brewed coffee to your doorstep in the morning.
A visit with Ian to the butterfly farm is well recommended - plus: on the ride even further into the jungle he will share a wealth of information about everything Belize & culture etc etc etc. Forget the guide book!
Overall tremendous value for money and can't recommend highly enough. If ever I return to Belize again (I hope so!) I'll definitely stay here a week next time.More
