After sitting down to finish our cones we witnessed the staff person use the bathroom but NOT WASH HIS HANDS in the only sink provided right outside that bathroom. He the proceeded to smoke a cigarette, and return to serving ice cream cones (without... More

This is an incredible place (grown every time we go) with amazing ice cream and gelato flavors. Most of the time the owners are there but if not, the lady in charge is also very nice. Love it!

Our Intrepid guide. informed us about this place and stated that this is the best ice cream in town. Having sampled it, we agree. The strawberry and coffee ice cream are both delicious. Definitely worth trying if you are in town. Directly opposite the bus depot.... where the buses park when they arrive.

They have really good crepes here and the staff was really friendly. The coffee was really good just how I like and my girlfriend ordered the Chai tea which she loved. I'll be sure to visit this place again when I'm back in Puerto Viejo.

Thank JC S

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 from the bus stop. We look forward to seeing you here! PURA VIDA!
