One of our favorites in Cartagena. They keep making the paletas very well. 👌👌 Tried this time the zapote paleta and was yummy.

So I come to eat their paletas @ PALETTAS and offered to pay in dollars. This establishment’s exchange is $2800 per dollar . As far as I know, the dollar today, July 10, 2022 reached a high of $4250 in Colombia. Let’s say because of...the exchange, they would do it for $4000…but no!!! This place in CARTAGENA IS STEALING FROM CUSTOMERS!!! Wow!! Incredible how they can get away with this…and to make it worse, they don’t take credit cards… Beware!!!! Llego a comerme las paletas de PALETTAS en Cartagena y ofrezco pagar en dólares. El cambio de este establecimiento es de $2800 por dólar. Hasta donde yo sé, el dólar alcanzó hoy, 10 de Julio 2022 alcanzó un máximo de $4250 en Colombia. Digamos que por el canje lo harían por $4000…pero no!!! Este lugar en CARTAGENA ESTÁ ROBANDO A LOS CLIENTES!!! ¡¡Wow!! Increíble cómo pueden salirse con la suya.. NO SE DEJEN ROBAR!More

This place will only accept cash! We found out after we had eaten our paletas! Since we didnt have colombian pesos we offered to pay in american dollars, to our surprise the attendant told us that the exchange rate there according to the owner was...$2,800 pesos per dollar which we thought was outrageous since the official rate was $4,370 that day! Very unfair and sad they tried to take advantage of tourists this way! Not coning back ever again! The product was ok!More

You should come everyday. I had the limonade/coconut flavor since that is such a special local flavor. My husband made me taste his swiss chocolate pop- its the most amazing fudge bar you every tasted-- and I had to get one of my own. Hey,...its vacation, I was never coming back so two was perfect.More

Amazing pops! Definitely stop if you’re in town! The only reason why I gave four stars was because of the service. The workers weren’t too friendly at all. Not purposely rude or anything but just got the vibe that they were uninterested in their jobs.

Amazing variety of delicious paletas and some gelato! They have cream-based, juice-based, and premium options that are all around 5000-6000 pesos each (~US$1.50-$1.70 at time of review). Small place with limited seating so it’s best to carry out.

These creamy popsicles in a wide range of fresh flavors are fantastic! The raspberry is particularly amazing: tart and not too sweet. It’s expensive, but worth it. The shop is tiny with only a couple of seats, so plan on eating outside while you walk.
