The women behind the counter was unfriendly and didn’t want to accept my 50mil peso bill because she said it was too large. They don’t accept credit cards per my understanding. They should keep more change on hand as tourists are usually provided with these...More

Icecream here was fine. But we had a very disappointing experience because the person serving tried to overcharge. We paid 50,000 for two icecreams and she tried to give us change in a few coming. So basically 15€ for two €2 icecream!!! BE CAREFUL

We stopped by for a passion fruit and guanabana popsicle. Had it coated with chocolate and it was 8,300 pesos each. Definitely not a cheap treat but they were good and refreshing. We chose to eat inside since it was so hot and muggy outside.
