Review of Helados Pops Multipark, Escazu

Nice little ice cream place with focus on fresh fruity flavors: banana, coconut, mango, strawberry were all enjoyed. Single cones run C1000 while double cups are C1700. There are tables on outside patio beneath roof; nice view.

Pops ice cream with many locations is GREAT ice cream. One of my favorites is Chocolote almond. I have been coming to Costa Rica since 1999.

Pops has been in Costa Rica for at least 40 years and continues to offer unusual and unique flavors as well as everyone's favorites. All flavors taste like what they are. No artificial taste.

I know this is a chain, but I am writing specifically about the Pops in Coronado/San Isidro. Went here several times during a conference nearby. The ice cream is great and the service fast and friendly. We took a group of 20 kids here and were all served accurately in just a few minutes. Definitely worth a visit if in... More

I have traveled to several cities in Costa Rica. Each city has many POPS shops. The desserts are delicious, reasonably prices and the staff are friendly and courteous.

After having 5 implants placed in my jaw, I'm restricted to soft foods for a while. While I really wanted to try the banana split, I knew it would be a bit much the day after surgery, so I went with a chocolate milkshake. It was like a meal meant for me. I'll be back tomorrow to have another flavor.

Pops is a great place when you need a cool refreshment. They serve cones, shakes, sundaes, & smoothies. We often go for the all fruit smoothies because you can choose to have them w/ water or milk, and since both my kids are lactose intolerant it's a great way to let them have a delicious treat w/out getting sick.
