We were so happy to stumble on this charming place after a long day on the Ruta Puuc. It's a charming location with patio seating, and the meal was made with a fresh, high quality ingredients. I would definitely go back!

This was one of our favorite places we stayed during our two week journey around Mexico and Guatemala. Though it is about a 10 minute drive from Uxmal, my husband and I were very happy that we stayed at this small B&B rather than the bigger (and more corporate-seeming) hotels right next to the ruins.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two days at the Pickled Onion. Favorite spot was the patio at the top of the property with two hammocks. Food was amazing. We got a box lunch our last day and it was great. Definitely a great spot to enjoy Uxmal and the surrounding area!

This seemed a mix of Italian and local cuisine. Everything was special. The flavors were unique. We sat outside on the breakfast patio was magical. The stars captures our attention. Chilean wine was spicy and beautiful.

One of the best guacamole we had so far on our trip together with the chimichangsa (also very good) and avocado soup. The service was friendly and fast. Overall, a great, remote and original gem in Santa Elena.

What a charming place to stay! Quite a different experience from town hotels as it consists of individual well equipped cabins in a garden setting with a lovely refreshing pool. The restaurant is also excellent. Close to Uxmal archaeological site and the Cocoa museum.

We loved the place. The hotel is located in the middle of the jungle but it's safe. We didn't see a single insect in the room. We stayed in a room that looks exactly like the Mayan houses with palm leaves top. It's so beautiful and confortable. The food is great. The owner is sympathetic. It's has the perfect location...
