If you're ever in Costa Rica this is a must. Ask for any flavor and you'll be amazed, my personal fav is chocolate.From a simple single cone to an elaborated waffle cone sunday, it is all heaven.

I'm a fan of vanilla ice cream and theirs is the best. Brownie dinamita ice cream is a great option for chocolate lovers and coffee ice cream is excellent.
