In our short visit to La Paz, we have visited La Fuente three times already. You can't beat their ice cream. Each of us has loved the flavors we've got. PAY FIRST with what size you want, then choose your flavors. They were accommodating the first time and let us do it backwards. We knew to pay first next round.... More

Awesome ice cream! Lourdes and here staff will scoop a delectible cool treat for you. Be sure to ask for a taste if you're unsure. The local seasonal flavors are not to be missed - pitayaha and mango. If you're not into ice cream or sherberts, turn around and check out the selection of paletas - Popsicles in regular or... More

And this is some top notch ice cream! It is the best I've had in La Paz, that is for sure, though I am not going to dis La Michoacana here. It is a cute place with friendly people and delicious ice cream and pallettas; yesterday I had the toasted coconut and fresa con crema and both were so good... More

La Fuente is located right along the Malecon, and has one of the largest varieties of ice cream I have seen in Baja. They make all their cones fresh, and the flavors are incredible. After getting our ice cream, we enjoyed the flavors while looking at the crystalline waters and strolled along the Malecon. Get the roasted coconut - you... More

Best ice cream in La Paz, no question about it. They make it, it's not mass produced stuff you get at those other stores. It's the only place we buy ice cream!

Everything is right about this ice cream. They make it in house, have awesome flavors with fresh ingredients, perfect waffle cones, great location, friendly staff and reasonably priced. This is all time top 5 ice cream for me. The double with one scoop of pecan and one of toasted coconut was pretty much a perfect 10.

We received coupons to La Fuente when our Un Cruise boat, Safari Endeavour, stopped in La Paz, but we didn't need more coupons to go back for more of their wonderful ice cream and fantastic, crunchy wafer cones. I can highly recommend this shop to anyone who loves great ice cream.

Delicious ice creams and sorbets along the malecon...or just across the street. My favourite is Piña Coco - pineapple coconut. Nice benches on which to sit outside - not cheap though! 85 pesos for a one-scoop cup plus a two-scoop cup. On the mainland it would be about 50 pesos...

Although not a big ice cream fan, a friend suggested La Fuente just after a very long and hot day and this was the perfect recommendation to soothe that tired, and hot into a cool and taste bud treat. Family owned and operated with facilities in the back that is the contributing factor to the natural flavors with real cream,... More

We ate dessert here twice in three days. Toasted coconut was my favorite. Cones are homemade and they're good. I also enjoyed the frozen bars. The strawberry is delicious. A must have sweet treat. Our first night it cost 200 pesos for four people. Can't beat that.
