So I had been hiking the Ruta Puuc for a few days. I had seen the Pickled Onion on a google map before I flew into Mexico. It was on my walking route and the name was intriguing so I made it a point to find it. I was overly impressed as soon as I walked up. The place is...

We had some of the best food during our trip through the Yucatan while at The Pickled Onion. It was served fast too. Their bag lunches are terrific too, especially the egg salad. They serve big and wonderful salads that are safe even for tourists to eat, and incredible fresh fruit plates I highly recommend. They were flexible with orders,...

My wife and I along with another couple spent a night in this wonderful place. We found the cabanas clean, comfortable (great mattress) and bug free,despite being in the jungle. No air con, but no big deal,the high papapa roof along with the fan keeps you cool and by the morning I was almost chilly! As the jungle air cools...

Thank you so much for a wonderful revue and for taking the time to write. Raymundo is a gem if you engage him in conversation .... this is how you get the best out of the Maya people.

This is such a great place to stay and what a location. Equidistant both from Uxmal and Kabah. Uxmal just a 10-15 minute drive away. Rooms are nicely decorated as huts and very clean and comfortable. the place is beautiful with all the tropical trees and even spotted several neem trees, which I had never seen outside India until now....

The Pickled Onion is right on Ruta Puuc, between the sites of Kabah and Uxmal, which makes it a perfect spot to stay at night when visiting this wonderful region.

We had planned two nights at Pickled Onion. One of our other stays before then fell through and an emergency call to Valerie helped solve it. She was able to accommodate us for an extra night.
