Ice Cream: A Refreshing Must for the Summer
These summer days in Puerto Vallarta, almost everyone feels like having an ice cream. It’s almost impossible not succumbing to the tasty flavors of this frozen treat generally made with dairy products (such as milk and cream) combined with fruits and other ingredients.
With the aim of presenting a few options for this season in Puerto Vallarta, we embarked on a delicious task and visited three ice cream parlors that offer personalized service and a wide variety of flavors with innovative combinations. Enjoy!
This is an artisanal ice cream shop with high attention to detail. Its main features are creativity, kind service and mouth-watering flavor combinations. Although the variety of flavors is wide, you’ll only find 10 of them in the ice cream cabinet every day, so it is possible that in each visit you’ll discover a different one.
“Ice cream and ice pops are a means of expression for us. When you see our products, you feel attracted to them right away because they have details arranged in a particular way. When tasting each of them, you’ll note a well-balanced flavor with the fruits and other ingredients that stand out and become protagonists. That’s our secret.” –Miguel Fernández, Sabores Helados owner.

- Turtle Cheescake (cheescake with Oreos, cajeta, nuts and dark chocolate chips).
- Old Vallarta (A classic nieve de garrafa with notes of jericalla and milk candy).
- Red wine and red berries sorbet.
When it comes to presentation, this ice cream parlor definitely stands out as many of its products are served within their own shell and are made with the same flesh of the fruit. Each one is unique and exquisite, as they don’t use artificial flavors. With a second branch at the Food Park Puerto Vallarta, this project will soon have a presence north of the bay, with upcoming branches in Bucerías and Valle Dorado.
“Besides ice cream, we also offer an array of milk and water ice pops composed of 12 flavors. Many restaurants in Puerto Vallarta trust our project and offer our specialties as desserts at their establishments. It is worthy of recognition our corn ice cream, which has position itself as the star product.” –Gabriela Valadez, owner.

Located on Sayulita’s main street, this ice cream shop makes all its products with fresh fruits of the area and purified water. Thanks to its proximity to the main square and the majority of attractions in this little town, this is one of the perfect spots to refresh prior, during and after your visit to the beach.
Besides its more than 10 flavors, it offers fresh waters (such as peppermint) and a great variety of ice pops (such as pineapple and basil). Its recipes have been transmitted generation after generation within Mexican families, being refined and adapted to our times.
