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 stopped in one late afternoon. The line was long - with good reason. Lots of options and the ice cream was very good. Not cheap but worth it. Definitely a hit!

Saw several ice cream options in town but we chose this one for dessert. Lots of fruit flavors with a few other options as well which made for yummy soft gelato right close to the beach.

Felipo (from Italy) owns this place and is making it a great stop. The menu is fairly limited beyond the Gelato which is to die for. What they lack in menu they more than make up for in warmth, style and friendliness. Felipo and his...More

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!
