The Freda was definitely a five star and the waffle cone was yum but disappointed with the vanilla as it had a strange aftertaste.

This is the one...... Very divine ice cream, very kitsch setting - and better I think than the one on the corner - I prefer scoops to sticks anyway. Enjoy.

Ice cream in Cartagena is unique and made with local fruits. This place had a great mango and coconut ice cream. We absolutely love the ice cream and the place was very modestly decorated. It had a quaint charm to it.

For only 4000 peso each and many different native fruit flavours, this is a must for gelato enthusiasts! Great indoor seating to watch the world go by with an amazing icecream in hand. They also offer brownies and delicious banana splits!

We stopped for ice creams after a meal elsewhere. Most Colombian ice cream has artificial colours and preservative, but not here: its freshly made using local fruit you don't get elsewhere (lu-lu ice cream anyone?) Delicious

I regularly travel to Italy and to Alicante, birthplace of turron ice cream, among other delicacies, in NY I can get a wide array of gelatos but this place is in my top 5 of best gelatos EVER. The maracuya in particular is the BEST I have ever tasted, not surprisingly for a city that has the best fruits I've... More

Having tried many gellaterias in Europe, this one stands up among the best. Don´t hesitate to stop at mid morning or mid afternoon for some ice cream as you walk around the hot streets of Cartagena!

Really good ice cream, and an adorable over the top kitsch decor. Lots of ice cream flavors to choose from. A must visit in Cartagena!

We passed this place at the height of day when it was unbearably hot and this was just what we needed! A/C and gelato, what more do you need on a scorching day?

We were only in Cartagena for 3 nights and we were here 2 out of the 3 nights! Great flavors (many of which have no English translation, but take a risk and try one!), great prices, air conditioning, what more do you need?
