I Love Lucy's (homemade ice cream)

Lucy's is actually inside the Turtle Bat Bakery. It's just an ice-cream counter, but don't let the smallness of the place fool you. The ice-cream is amazing. And, the guy behind the counter was making fresh, hot off the griddle waffle cones. Both the ice-cream and waffle cones were not overly... read more

All I can say is homemade, yummy, and creamy with lots of flavors to choose from... not cheap but worth every penny after snorkeling and sitting on the beach! Coconut and turtle tracks are the bomb

We ate breakfast here twice and found the food to be fresh and tasty. The bakery and the coffee is also very good. Love all the cats.

Had a relaxing, tasty lunch after spending a few hours snorkeling. (Be sure to look up 'new rules' to protect reef/turtles) Had the grilled fish tacos which were excellent! Follow them up with yummy "Turtle Tracks" ice cream. Highly recommended!!

The chocolate habanero ice cream was smooth and rich with a slight tingle. Regular chocolate was good, too. We also tried a few of their other favors as well, but found that the more ingredients, the more ice crystals seemed to form. A good way to finish off a dinner at Turtle Bay Cafe.

After enjoying a long day at Yal-ku Lagoon, we stopped in to get ice cream and sweets. I had a single scoop of salted caramel in a dish. There were about 20 different flavors and all sounded/looked good. Also picked up a coconut bar and a brownie. Both were large and very satisfying. There was real food too, but we... More

Just spent a week in Akumal and had Lucy's ice cream three times....fresh mint and chocolate chip, chocolate and turtle tracks (coconut with chocolate covered almonds). All three were delicious! Highly recommend if you're looking for a cold snack on a hot Akumal day. Waffle cones are delicious and fresh too. (Like other reviewers, miss the shrimp tacos, but Turtle... More

First off, the coconut and the and the dark chocolate habanero ice creams are out of this world good. The serving size is generous and the flavors are intense. Definitely the best ice cream in the area--you can tell it's homemade. Sadly, Lucy's no longer offers tacos, and her shrimp tacos were without a doubt the best around. I still... More

We stopped to Lucy's Kitchen for ice cream after lunch one day. I was really excited to try Turtle Tracks...a coconut ice cream with chocolate chunks in it. My husband had the Salted Caramel. We both thought the ice cream was just okay...nothing great. Probably would not return.

If you are in Akumal you have to visit Lucy's! We've been to akumal many times and Lucy's is a favorite especially for some ice cream on a hot day!
