A sticky-fingered guide to the best ices in the city takes you from glorious gelato in luxurius ice cream parlours to sweet shops full of candy; simply the best places in Cancun to indulge a sweet tooth.
Aldo’s Gelato ♥
It can be difficult to choose among the many ice cream shops in Plaza Las Americas, but as soon as you go to Aldo’s Gelato, you know you are in safe hands. The tasty and creamy flavours are wonderful, they have at least 24. You can get little samples before choosing the one you want. My favorite one is the scoop of almond and another of Ferrero Rocher chocolate, both of which are incredibly good. A two scoops ice cream costs about 5 dollars. This store is located inside Malecon Plaza Las Americas outside the foodcourt.
Ice Dreams ♥
In Cancun, the number of luxury coffee shops and ice cream parlours increases. One of the favorite is Ice Dreams, which has pitched right next to Tradiciones Latte Art Cafe. If you are in a transfer, ask him to take you to Avenue Kabah street corner Avenue Holbox. This ice cream, made frozen yoghurt has 2 special flavors you can choose to customize with toppings.
Hageen Daz ♥
Reuben Mattus created the finest ice cream in 1921. The irresistible creations, hot beverages and divine pastries are made with the choicest ingredients. Be prepared to pay for premium cones and ice cream. Located in Plaza Las Americas & on the bottom floor of Forum by the Sea shopping center across from Senior Frogs at Avenue Kukulkan.
Moyo believes in the Mexican capacity to create an exceptional and creative flavor. The natural and fresh ingredients are chopped daily to keep all the nutrients. This is the only frozen natural yogurt no fat that does not need pasteurization, it’s made with Bulgarian Yogurt which contains 30 million lactobacilli per gram. Moyo is a functional food for the important amount of nutrients that favor the optimal functioning of the body. Cancun Moyo is located in Malecon Plaza Las Americas.
You can recognize Nutrisa ice-cream parlour from the queues of people outside. This might not be the most delicious ice cream in the world, but it’s prices are way better than the other. You can choose from a traditional scoop ice cream to a soft yogurt ice cream made with natural ingredients. Try to fill it with carob trees, granola and chocolates. Perhaps you can try on the top a lemon cream or chocolate syrup with some caramelized almonds. Nutrisa is located in Plaza Las Americas, La Gran Plaza or at Superama in Avenue Nichupte.
La Michoacana ♥
Even their aguas frescas give you the option to pick and choose what flavor sorbet you want. They always have a wide variety of flavors, so you’re bound to find something you like. The Ice Cream is very rich and delicious for a great price in case you want a 3 scoop ice cream! 100% Mexican. If you want to try a typical flavor try mamey, one of my favorites! You can find La Michoacana at the food court of Plaza Las Americas and Comercial Mexicana Avenue Kabah.
