THE best ice cream, popsicles and cinnamon rolls!!!

This review is for May 2014. Artisanal ice cream and popsicles made naturally and you can taste the difference. Everything we've tried has been yummy. We crave the pistachio ice cream and jamaica popsicles for the rest of the year after we leave Mazatlan. This time we tried pecan ice cream and it... read more

We stopped at their cafe in the Centro after a day at Stone Island. The ice cream choices were original and scrumptious, and they change their selection often. We tried strawberry with manchego, lime with lavender, and traditional chocolate. All were fabulous. Next time, I'd like come in later in the evening after dining on the Plaza for an affogato!

HelarteSano has added an espresso machine this year, and are making great coffee. Of course, having all that great ice cream on hand, an affogato is a natural! Highly recommend that you give the ice cream and the coffee a try!

Helarte sano now has two locations in Centro - the walkup location, and, just a few steps away, a new sit-down cafe that's open in the afternoon/evenings. Excellent, high-quality ice cream, made with love and care. Give it a try!

The best ice cream in Mazatlan! All fresh natural ingredients! They've recently opened a small eating area where you can sit & enjoy the ice cream. Check out the beautiful light fixtures that they purchased in Guadalajara ....beautiful! They're also have an outlet in the Gran Plaza Mall.

Rak and Loa and all of their family started making real (no veg oils) ice cream a couple of years ago, and it just keeps getting better. They use only the best ingredients and are always adding new natural flavours. Yuuuuuuum! This November they are adding an ice cream parlour where you can sit and eat your delicious ice cream...

Today, like all September days in Mazatlan is hot with tropical torpid humidity. I was going to be walking around town doing business for a good hour so the best thing to take with me... a paleta de melon (cantaloupe popsicle) to power me through my hike. All their ice creams and popsicles are artesanal, made in small batches and... More
