I walked by Aldo's many times (there are about 5 shops on 5th) trying to resist the call inside. Finally I gave up the fight.My memory was not overrated,this gelato is the best!. My 17 year old granddaughter gave in to a cone and two nights later, asked to go back again. Don't bother fighting the urge,it's worth it.

My husband and I enjoy gelato whenever we visit a new place, and were ecstatic to note 3 Aldo's as we sauntered around Playa Del Carmen with our friends. The gelato was marvelous: rich, cold, sweet, true-tasting. We tried Nutella, Mango, Chocolate, Tangerine, Limona. My husband can't wait to go back another day, and I think we will! There is... More

One of the best places in Playa to get ice cream. I in particular like it as it is not as it is not to sweet and the amount of choice they have in flavour is awesome !! Love it !!

It was 29 degrees Celcius and we were walking 5th Avenue. We stopped in to have an ice cream and it was super delicious. We had the Fruit one and it was so refreshing. Everyone was nice and the store was clean and well kept. A must try!!!

Our family enjoyed Aldo's for gelato dessert every night. The kids enjoyed trying all the different flavors and it was a great place to sit with dessert and people watch while on busy 5th Ave.

I had the Ferrero Rocher and LOVED it. I mean it was FANTASTIC. The service is great. My only issue is that some of them only take cash and other will take a credit card so I just needed to check in advance. Great place tho.

It's on a busy corner. They carry so many flavors to choose from. Our favorites are the chocolate hazelnut, coffee and fruit flavors. They have tables and chairs outside, should you want to sit and enjoy your gelato. We love enjoying our dessert while sitting outside, on 5th Avenue, while people watching. So much fun!

The place has a diverse range of options, including fruits. Its is very clean and the price is not that steep when converting to USD. Of course the city offers others cheaper options for ice cream, but Aldo's is everywhere and easy to find

Always a must stop. So many great flavors to choose from. We love the coconut, chocolate, and all the other surprise flavors. You can't really go wrong with any one
