Had a great pistachio icecream here, flavour was on point and they are priced slightly below a one scoop gelato (available everywhere in the city). Would go back again.

Our walking tour guide and the waiter at upscale Carmen both recommended La Palletteria. After 2 stops, we strongly recommend as well.

This is a small, traditional ice cream shop, with over 30 flavours including tamarind and coconut lemonade. Plenty of vegan options. They only accept cash but it's not expensive.

Was excited about coming here and it was definitely worth it with the hot weather, but not as I had expected. Staff were ok, not very friendly. I had a strawberry pop and it's been the worse one I've ever had. Not too much flavor...More

We read about this shop in The NY Times article "36 hours in Cartagena". All the flavors are great. We have gone every night after dinner with our kids. Note, they only take cash.

Make sure to save room in your belly for a pit stop at one of the ice cream/popsicle shops in Cartagena... We tried several and they have great varieties of flavors along with friendly staff. We stopped in La Paletteria in late afternoon and enjoyed...More
