We visited The Pickled Onion on a recommendation from the excellent Ellyne at Cascadas de Merida. Valerie, the owner of The Pickled Onion met us and showed us our adobe lodgings, with vast bed and rusticall-styled on-suite.
There's a tranquil pool, where the local swallows skim for drinks, but the real drinks come from the terrace. A strong margherita goes down just fine with the thoughtfully flavoured cuisine.
The location of The Pickled Onion is just right (10 mins' drive away) from Uxmal, which means that you can wake refreshed and get to see the impressive ruins before the crowds.
