“Refreshing popsicles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

We tried the tamarindo and lime flavour. Both were delicious and refreshing in the heat. This place is always busy and they have a nice display and assortment of flavours.

Tasty and refreshing! The popsicles are made with real fruit and were the perfect cold treat on a hot day.

“Incredible tasty popsicles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

I got a very tasty, fresh popsicle as a way to cool down from the Cartagena heat. La Paletteria has a huge selection, is very reasonably price, and is very quick. You MUST stop by if you are in the Walled City and looking for a quick, cheap treat. Probably the single greatest popsicle I have ever had.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

My travel companion fell in love and thinks this is a genius business idea for any beachy destination.

If you go at night, the cramped interior might cause some stress, but it's worth it. Lots of fun flavors that don't disappoint. My friend was wise to have hers dipped in chocolate both times we visited because her popsicles took longer to melt once we stepped outside.

“Gourmet popsicles - perfect for a hot day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We stopped by La Paletteria twice. What an amazing variety of flavors! They were a bit pricey, and I don't recommend going outdoors to eat them because they melt so quickly in the heat and humidity of Cartagena.
