The best ice cream in El Salvador! You can called the Salvadorian gelatto. Very artisanal handmade, with a great variety of flavors.

the best ice cream in the city, still being sold at the corners of the streets. It is served in a special cone that is handmade and has kept the flavor that I still remember, I love the fruit flavored Ice Cream!
