Try the tamarindo, limon and chicozapote. Beware, they are too sweet, but is it beautiful to sit there and see Merida life happening

We went here after our walking tour around Merida,, and what a find it was!... The selection of natural flavours of the sorbets (NB: NOT ice-cream) was huge and it was good to sample some new exotic flavours.

Visited de Centro Histórico location, had the coconut flavor very good natural flavor, however a bit sweet for my taste. In general average service, lots of choices and good quality (compared to other ice cream places in Centro histórico) will come again since was pleased with quality after tasting other options.

Sorry but this place is living on ancient history. Ice cream is just so so. Service is lackluster and without passion. And for 40 pesos in a Styrofoam cup, poor environment. So say no and look for other locals for ice cream.

A trip to Merida is not complete without stopping by Helados Colon for some special treat. Helados Colon is a Merida icon and well worth the visit.

Stopped off for a break on a hot afternoon for a cool and delicious treat. Great location on the Paseo to enjoy some ice cream, sit in the shade and watch the people walk by
