Locate in the main square in a historical building, a centenarian ice cream shop. They have several ice cream flavors, some are made with typical mexican fruits. The ice cream is like home made, using natural ingredients. It´s an authentic experience in Merida

Best Coconut sorbet in Mexico. Hands down. I haven't tried all the other flavors but they seem to make everything the same way that they would have in 1909 when it opened. All natural fruit ingredients.

I think this place is traditional and very authentic, some ice cream flavors are kind of exotic (pitaya). I loved the Champolas!
