We discovered this gelato house deep in the Hidalgo district of Centro Isla Mujeres. The service is friendly, the gelato is very reasonably priced by North American standards and the location trendy. They even have a reward program i.e. have 10 gelatos, get one free! IMO the owner or proprietor is Italian- which explains everything!

We stop here at least once every time we visit the island. Gelato is incredible (I've tried almost all the flavors), the prices are ridiculously low, and the owners are very friendly. Plus it's in the middle of the action on the north side.

Enjoyed stopping here after dinner for dessert and coffee. A very small cafe. Delicious coconut and mango ice cream everything made in house.

We look forward to eating gelato here every night after dinner while we are on vacation! The owner is so nice and makes the best gelato on the island! You won't be disappointed!

What a treat to find a Bolognese making gelato in Isla Mujeres. Excellent, fresh... the straciatella and amarena were spot on and the prices lower than some other gelaterie. 110% recommended.

Dropped in for a milkshake, vanilla of course, and this was fine and filled the spot. I'd have liked it a little thicker but that's just my taste.

We have sampled a lot of ice cream/gelato on the island, this is by far, the best! Well priced, great flavors, very polite owner. Would recommend highly.

Got some delicious chocolate gelato here, exactly what I was looking for. Tiny place but it's more fun to roam and eat gelato anyway :)

my first visit was this past september when it was much more humid. I enjoyed the gelato and three cups of espresso back then and made it a point to return. here I am enjoying two cups of coffee and more italian ice cream. the owner is super friendly and very accommodating. the coffee is freshly brewed each order.

Thank serrano930
