It doesn't exists in Colombia another place to taste the real italian gelato, their gelatos are simply spectacular. I love salt caramel flavor

We sought out Gelateria Paradiso based on the reviews I read here, but were very disappointed. The lady behind the counter barely responded to our greeting, sighed when we asked to taste one of the more exotic sounding flavours, and got irritated when we asked her to repeat the prices (they don't have them displayed anywhere, and she mumbled them...

I loved the coconut gelato! Refreshing and just perfect, good variety of flavors for everyone, from the traditional ones to the ones with more Caribbean flavor.

When it's over 90F, a scoop or two of gelato in a well air conditioned gelataria that's a cross between a tea room and an 8-year old's fantasy bedroom seems like a good idea. Cinnamon gelato that evokes cereal milk. It's delicious.

Cartagena was caliente (hot), we were hot, & we'd just arrived...and Gelateria Paradiso was one of the first cool spots we encountered after passing under the yellow clock tower. The icecream (not gelato) was cold, and we had a great seat in the window. But the prices are oriented towards tourists who don't know better (in other words, a little... More

I was recommended this by a friend of a friend who lives in Cartagena, I and I can easily see why! The service was nice and wonderful, the selection of gelato and ice cream amazing - and everything we had tasted greats,

We've been having ice cream through all of south America and the banana split we had there (vanilla, oreo and sorpigsa siciliana) was just amazing, plenty of whipped cream (or en equal substitute ) and hot chocolate sauce. Definitely going there for another round soon !

They don't sell gelato they sell poor quality ice cream. I had a scoop of chocolate almond and a scoop of Ron raisin that was 9000 pesos. Gelato is made with cream hence lato in gelato. Hagen daz is 10 x better

This is a great place to stop in and cool off when the Cartagena heat is getting to you. The gelato was delicious, but isn't it always. Very cute decor, A/C, prices aren't bad.
