While you are enjoying the delicious sorbets, which taste exactly like if you were eating a fresh fruit, you can enjoy people watching and a bit of shade on beautiful Paseo Montejo. Love the place!!

The experience having a sorbet in "Sorbeteria Colon" is unique. The taste of the ice creams and sorbets reminds you yout childhood, if you were born in Merida. If not, it transports you to a world of flavors, you will remeber forever! The yucatecan fruits used to prepare them, the way they prepare them, and the relaxed atmosphere, make it... More

We came here (both on Paseo de Montejo & near Cathedral) on almost a daily basis. It's that good! Pineapple, strawberry and watermelon were my favorites.

If you like sorbets and ice cream then you definitely have try the ones at Helados Colon. They are soooo sooo good. Made with fresh fruit every day, at good prices and great portions. A very popular flavour is the 'Mamey' ice cream. It is made from a local and very popular fruit called Mamey, which is dark orange in... More

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...
