We stopped by here for ice cream on our way back from a few hours on the beach. The ice cream was delicious. There are many flavors to choose from. They also have baked goods. We took home brownies that were very good.

We stopped by for an ice cream in the evening. With her choice of around 12 flavours I decided to try dulce de leche and coffee - yum!! A small cone with 2 flavours cost around $2.50usd. Would definitely recommend.

We are the first Italian Gelato Shop in The Caribbean of Costa Rica for five years running. We have brought our traditional gelato recipes direct from Italy. We offer a large selection of delicious flavors( up to 20) made in house daily. In addition to the tropical and traditional flavors we also have non-dairy and vegan options. If you dont feel like a cold treat, try an espresso or cappuccino. We have created a chilled out Caribbean vibe! You will feel cool and relaxed listening to our selection of reggae music while sitting outside under a thatched roof with ocean view! We are located in the town center just across the bus stop. We look forward to seeing you here! PURA VIDA!
