Young coconut is a rare delicassy that makes you feel like born again. Make that into a perfectly textured milky sorbet, and you will be on cloud nine before you know it. Other flavours are also good, but coconut is seriously to die for!

The best traditional ice cream in town. You must try mango, guanabana, coco, platano, guayaba... You name it, every one is great. Don't miss it.

I was not sorry they were out of Mamey Ice-cream when we were there twice on this visit. Merida had been experiencing 102+ degree weather and more. Watermelon sorbet came to the rescue, and now I ache just thinking about how much I like that one over all the other flavors. Do yourself a favor and wait for a hot... More

My wife and I visited twice. Try the coconut and mango flavors for fresh, natural components. Traditionally, the servers bring water to the table. The water tastes terrible. Consider upgrading.

This is a must if you visit Merida, the original is in downtown in the same corridor as the Governor's Palace, local fruit flavors sorbets , depending on the season, you'll want to try more than one but the servings are a bit big, so you can come back everyday you are in town, they have a few shops around...

I was recommended this place when visiting Merida. The place was not really that good and the taste of the ice creams was decent. I recommend the mamey flavor.

You have to go when in Mérida.... it's chic to sit on the patio and savour their various flavors... Mamey is my favorite... they also offer something called 'champola'... the Mexican version of a milk shake.... You can also order a liter and take the ice cream home with you.... we order a liter of helado de limón and pour... More

We dropped into Sorbeteria Colon many times to beat the Mérida heat - both locations too. Many flavours sampled - we just could not get enough of this place. My wife liked the Mango best because it was chock full of that fruit, but they were out of it more often than it was available. Me, I liked going down... More

If there's a place serving better ices in Mérida we didn't find it. A mouthful of flavor in each serving. The selection varies from day to day, depending on what fruit is available. No mater, it's all very good. Would get a 5 were it not for the tacky and tired chairs.
