I used to think these guys did the best ice cream in the world, but sadly no longer. Used to be delicious creamy ice cream and the staff were really friendly. The decor was always a little twee... felt like going into an english tea room on steroids and that hasn't changed. However now the ice cream tastes more watery... More

Lovely Ice creams with a good range of flavours (try the crystallised salted caramel!!) We were only there for the one day and they accepted our US dollars at a very reasonable exchange rate.

I love the place. Great decoration. Open until 10pm. And the icecream is wonderful. FInd the strangest local flavors, they have experimented with everything and produced DELICIOUS flavors. I just love the place. And the chocolate icecream is wonderful.

The ice cream in Paradiso is delicious. They have a wide variety of flavours you can choose from, and if you're not in the mood for ice cream... Try out one of their delicious cookies and brownies. The place is also very cute and comfy with it's 1940's inspired decorations. If you find yourself in the Walled City of Cartagena,... More

I went out of my way to find this place, and thankfully it was easy to find. The shop was busy when I went in but the ladies behind the counter were very helpful and pointed out non-dairy options that I had (there were quite a few - yay!). The service was great, the ice cream was even better, and... More

Since the weather is always nice and humid, stopping for ice cream or popsicles are an absolute MUST. This spot is soooo great....as I said while I was there, It was like having paradise in paradise...:)

We stopped in for a break from the heat and to enjoy some gelato. The service is very friendly, the decor is "so cute" (a quote from my wife), and they have a lot of flavors to choose from. Can't pick one? Go with a two-flavor dish. You can sample the flavors before you make your choice, which may actually... More

Super cute little tea time decor, to have some Gelato and cool off from the heat in Cartagena. You can try the flavors free of charge and it's easy ok your pocket. Quality taste and nice little shop.

My husband and I wandered into this gelateria after hearing good things online. There were more than 20 flavors to choose from but the service attendant behind the counter was very annoyed when we asked to sample 2 flavors. In my opinion, it is completely reasonable to sample flavors, especially when there are exotic fruit flavors that one doesn't have... More

Cute little gelato place. Interesting and different flavors with local fruits - they will let you taste them first which is nice. . They are open late so we can have dessert after dinner. Warning... the dark chocolate is great but super rich.
