The gelato I got was dulce de leche and mani (dulce de leche is a Costa Rican pudding like thing and mani is just spanish for peanuts) and it was easily the best ice cream I've had here... More

Very nice ice cream! You can try the flavours and the portions are very big. They didn't write the names of the flavours in English though.

We tried the peanut-chocolate flavor, the peanut flavor, and the cinnamon flavor. Enjoyed all three. We arrived craving coffee-flavored gelato, but they did not carry that flavor. We could have had a cup of coffee with ice cream in it, though. We'll come back!

Wonderful gelato in a charming location. Ruined only by one thing (but it's a big thing). 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!

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!
