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?

This is a super cute gelato shop that is a great place if you wanna rest and cool down. The gelato was good and it wasn't that expensive.

This is a nice cute store, with a large selection of gelato. Sure it doesn't compare to Italy, but it's pretty good ice cream. The chocolate was rich and delicious. The coconut was light and refreshing. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this place, but if you're walking by, definitely swing it for a short, sweet and... More

Nice selection of ice cream served in the setting of a tweener's girl! Something cool and eclectic about this. If you're in the mood for ice-cream and unsure about flavours, choose a half-liter option with 5 falvours...it's only a bit more than 3 scoops' worth!

Once you enter the place, it is like to are somewhere in late 70s, early 80s, decorated in light pink. You would never guess that they have sell such tasteful and creamy ice cream. My husband and I went there twice in a 3-day trip. If you love ice cream, it is worth to buy the 1/2 liter with 5... More

I have visited this cute chic icecream shop many times. Excellent service, they let you try different flavours if you can't make up your mind because there are over 20 to choose from. My personal favourites are guayaba, guanabana and tamarindo. Go for the weird exotic ones. You can eat chocolate any place in the world but where else can... More

As mentioned by others not the best ice cream in the world, but great choice and has a quirky atmosphere. Ice cream is good with good varieties, def worth having as a mid day treat or after a meal. I would and prob will go again.

I'm not much into deserts and sweets but we walked by the corner gelato shop and I had remembered reading about it on TripAdvisor so stopped in so my wife could get a scoop. I had a small taste of hers and immediately decided I would also get the dessert. It truly is excellent. We've since been back and have... More

Had a lovely late night ice cream. Cute little cafe. Lots of choice of flavors including some Colombian specialities! Oreo flavor was awesome!

Walled city...check. Romantic horse and carriage ride with horse hooves clicking on cobblestone streets...check. Tummy digesting some fantastic meal you've just enjoyed, but still...you need something else...wait, a little ice cream would just do it. But not just any ice cream. Here you'll find some flavors you've never encountered, some you have, and some you'd never associate with ice cream...until... More
