We came across this little ice cream store (Tepoznieves) which is only about one block west of 5th Avenue on Avenida Constituyenntes. The ice cream was fabulous. The flavors were plentiful and wonderful to taste. This place is a must for anyone who loves ice cream. You will not be disappointed. This a must stop place for when we are next in Playa.

By the way Tepoznieves is only one block east of the best Venezuelan restaurant in Playa del Carmen, Kaxapa Factory. What a gastronomic pleasure.

A local directed us to this little gem. We were down to our last pesos and heading back to the hotel and had enough to get two scoops. The ladies working there were very friendly and sweet. We asked what was most popular there and we were given a scoop of passionfruit and a scoop of some sort of delicious creation that had berries and yogurt. Both were wonderful, but my favorite was the passionfruit! It was much lighter than American ice cream and such a refreshing treat on a very hot, humid day. I highly recommend stopping by and trying some local ice cream! They had so many favors to choose from! Definitely something for everyone!

We had just had a $8 scoop of ice cream at a pricy name brand ice cream shop on Quinta Avenida that was ok. 15 minutes later we were scheduled to meet with my sister at Avenida Constituyenntes. We found her sitting in front of this little ice cream shop just off the main drag, enjoying a passion fruit ice cream. And we had to try it!
For only 25 pesos - 2 bucks, we enjoyed a scoop of coconut and dragon fruit. Or try one of many other flavors with exotic names... Oración de Amor, with almonds, apples and rose petals...and a score more. See the menu photo included on this page. They will let you sample before you make your decision, but be warned! You'll have a really tough time deciding! Do what we did - order another when you are done with your first!
This is one ice cream shop I can get really excited about, and will never forget. I may not come back to Quinta Avenida for shopping, but I will certainly come back for this special ice cream!

Best place for ice cream in Playa del Carmen. Lots of flavors (vary weekly), excellent quality and cheap prices.
If you want a taste of REAL Mexican ice cream, this is it.

During all my previous visits to Playa I was wondering why there weren't any places serving ice cream/ices with local flavors (like they do all over Mexico) and, finally,Tepoznieves opened up! A must to visit rather than Haagen Dazs, DQ, and others that you can easily go to back home. Many exotic flavors (rose petals, kiwi, guanabana, etc); refreshing on a hot day! Friendly staff and you can sample as many as you wish before you decide what to buy. Very reasonably priced, too
