“Enjoyed it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

As Americans...what's better on a hot day that Ice Cream? Our family likes Ice Cream so when our driver pointed out Pops in La Fortuna we had to give it a try. It certainly hit the spot...the Ice Cream was really good and the pricing was reasonable. We saw them in other places around the country but that was the only shop we tried.

“Costa Rica's home-grown ice cream parlor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

For those of us who live in Costa Rica, a visit to Pop's on a hot day is almost mandatory. The ice cream is of excellent quality and many flavors, and there are many outlets scattered around the country.

“Very inefficient and not the best desserts.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

The wait time was long and the service was very slow. The cashier was sipping her drink while she could have been ringing up customers. Our ice cream cones took ten minutes to order with only one group in front of us. The good news is that the ice cream was tasty.

“we went every night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

it became a family tradition......enjoy dinner in la fortuna and then finish at POPS. The ice cream is delicious and the staff is very friendly. It's in the middle of town - you can't miss it!
