On a hot day in San Pedro, this makes for the perfect stop. House made gelato that changes everyday teasing you to come back again, which we did. Tastes are free so that you can find the perfect selection, a larger selection of flavors than other ice cream places in town. Only suggestion would be to mix flavors in a... More

I think it may be something to do with being in the desert that this place is so highly rated but I had a scoop and it was basically tasteless!

It surely worths a visit, try Rica Rica flavor, a typical local leave used in spirits and for seasoning

A must try if you're in San Pedro on a hot day! I had Chanar with chips which was absolutely awesome. Very thick ice cream, coming in huge portions! The perfect rest from the hot of San Pedro.

Babalu offers an interesting choice of ice creams such as pisco sour, rica rica and other traditional Chilean fruits. It is not cheap but the scoops are big and it is possible to try before you choose.

This tiny store has a row of traditional ice creams as well as a wide selection of ice creams made from local seeds, herbs and other ingredients. I had never heard of the ice creams I ate and can't even relay the names but the lady serving kindly let us try several flavors with little plastic spoons. You can choose... More
