The paletas at Paletteria were delicious. There were so many flavors we wish we could have made multiple trips!

These paletas are so good, we stopped by more than once during our trip. I love the tropical fruit flavors - such a good treat to cool off from the heat and humidity! This little shop is a counter only so not much room when crowded. Perfect to hold and walk around the city.

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.

We were only in Cartagena a week and must have been to La Paletteria at least 5 times. It is right in the heart of the old city, and so easy to pop in and grab a paleta to cool down. We tried quite a few of the flavors but the outright winner was the Limonada Coco. Just like the drink (found everywhere in Cartagena) this is a delicious blend of tangy lime and smooth creamy coconut, with little chewy coconut pieces. Both my kids were completely obsessed, and my 2 year old is still telling everyone about his "coco limon lolly". The other fruit flavors also stood out. This place is tiny, so there isn't much seating, and it does get quite busy so eat fast, or eat outside. Ordering in Spanish and having smaller bills was helpful!
