Passed the stand several times, but then one day I stopped. It was delicious and refreshing. My favorite is the ice cream sandwich. So yummy. The owner was very personable. I love that it is homemade.

While visiting Flamingo you'll want to stop in for some of the most delicious ice cream treats. On a hot day what better way to cool down. It's great value. You'll be pleased you made the stop.

These hot Costa Rican days scream out for ice cream! Beach Treats provides a number of fresh, all natural options including vegan and ‘booze infused’. I’ve tried strawberry as well as vanilla with limoncello, both delicious. Added bonus is the service with smiles.

The Coconut Lime "ice-cream" was delicious. Sweet and sour, perfect blend. Met the owner, he mentioned he may open other locations!
