Best or perhaps the only ice cream parlor in Mayaguez. Excellent variety of flavors. If you want a sundae then go to McDonalds, come here and enjoy corn or guava ice cream.

This place serves homemade ice cream. There is always a line but, it's worth the wait. I recommend the coconut ice cream.

This is what we call Chinese ice creams. They prepare ice cream without milk components. Guava, pineapple, corn, cake, almond, tamarind, coconut, pina colada, and many other flavors. Small an very close to the Plaza-Church complex of the town. Typical place to go and buy. No sitting place just walk and sit in the plaza and enjoy your ice cream.... More

This place offers a huge variety of ice cream flavors at excellent prices. Cones are the best value at $1.60 plus tax. It is always clean and well staffed so even a long line moves quickly. Take your ice cream to Plaza Colon where you can sit, relax and enjoy.

Mango, corn, and coconut are some of the flavors available in this quintessential ice cream stand near Plaza Colon and a must stop for visitors to downtown Mayaguez. Very little seating area, instead opt to bring your choice flavor to Plaza Colon where seating abounds giving you front seats to enjoy the sights and sounds of the City’s center all... More

This is an iconic local ice cream parlor with a lot of Flavors from local fruits. The ice cream is creamy, refreshing and flavorful. Don't mis the opportunity to try the Biscocho and Maiz Flavors.
