Ice Cream and Sorbet Worth the Walk!

If you have a desire for a sweet treat, this is the place to go! The ice cream is rich and creamy, and there are many, many flavor choices, as well as cones and dishes. There were 8 sorbet flavors, as well. Very good! Look for the tree painted white with colorful polka dots.

Best ice cream in all of La Paz. Look for the painted spotted tree with a lot of people standing outside along the Malcon.

The best ice cream around and wonderful tasting homemade waffle cones as well. You must try the homemade popcicle's. Some are made with cream and some with water, all are fantastic using fresh fruit.

The ice cream equals any I've had anywhere (and that includes Rome, Florence, and anywhere in the US). Not too sweet, not too rich. The fruit flavors (lemon cream and strawberry cream) are particularly good. Get the cajeta (goat milk caramel) if you're feeling adventurous.

Local flavors with real fruit, chunks of dulce de leche, or made with a sour orange (naranjito). The place is always hopping, for good reason. Worth going out of your way.

I had the coconut ice cream in a waffle bowl - amazingly good...easy to find right across from the pier. My friend asked the worker what her favorite flavor was - she ordered it-passion fruit. Intense flavor!

We were sent here to try their ice cream from another local business. We were super glad we did. We got the lime ice cream with vanilla ice cream and it was so good!!

The ice cream was fantastic! The people were genuine and it was for a good price. I had the oreo ice cream twice and it was fantastic! The ice cream is very creamy and is to die for! Plus the cones are awesome because instead of being pointed at the bottom it is folded in at the bottom so no... More

It's still a very good ice cream place but it used to be excellent. They basically have 2 general kinds: "de agua" which is a sorbet, and "de leche" which is an gelato type ice cream Some of the flavors are unusual like the Cherimoya which was quite good, but watch out for the seeds
