We have stopped here along the Paseo de Montejo at least twice. The staff were helpful even in busy times and the ice cream was a lovely respite from the Merida heat. Family friendly and fun to visit.

Oh TripAdvisor reader, I forbid you from leaving Mérida without trying Colon's remarkable helados. The chocolate, laced with canela, is amazing; the elote -- yes, corn ice cream -- is a subtle wonder. On a hot night, there is nothing in the city better than this. Just keep the relentless Paseo de Montejo hawkers at bay.

WE were in Merida two days, and we had to go back to this wonderful place for sorbet. IT was so hot and humid in Merida, but the sorbet made everything better. So refreshing on a very hot afternoon. WE tried the strawberry, peach and coconut, and al were deoicious

We take all of our visitors here after a trip to the center square. My favorite sorbete flavor is coconut. I am craving it right now just thinking about it! The mango, strawberry (fresa) and chocolate are also good. If you are daring you might try the elote (corn) flavor. I would have given this place a 5 but sometimes... More

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.
