It's definitely worth a stop here for an ice cream. There are many flavors, some new to the US palate. The icre cream is very good and the price is reasonable. Pops is very popular amongst the locals and visitors.

For those who like ice cream, this is a good option. It's not cheap, but is not expensive either. I would say they are between average and good.

Pretty standard ice cream chain but they do have an array of tropical flavors that are harder to find in the United States such as soursop (guanabana in Spanish), cas, maracuya and others.
