If you're walking the blue line from the cruise ship to the plazuela, be sure to stop and have a coffee or an ice cream (or both!) here. On this trip, we also took baguette sandwiches for the airplane trip home, which were far better...More

Love the fresh gelato! Worth a walk on the Blue Trail from the ship to Old Town. An easy walk. Well marked. We wandered into town around 10AM and looked around a bit. On the way back to the ship we stopped in for a...More

If you are looking for a treat in historical Mazatlan this is the place. Right on the blue line from the cruise ships and adjacent to the Angela Perralta theatre. Extensive choices of ice cream flavours all made with natural products. Treat yourself.

Nice place to rest, have coffee or ice cream and use wifi! The convenience and ambience surprised our group of 6. Children loved the ice cream and we enjoyed the cappuccino.

What sets Helarte Sano apart from other gelato we've tried is the inventive flavours & combinations: cranberry & nutmeg, goat cheese & fresh raspberry cheesecake -- and those are just 2 of what we tried! The gelato is made onsite and the sit-down cafe near...More

This review is for May 2014. Artisanal ice cream and popsicles made naturally and you can taste the difference. Everything we've tried has been yummy. We crave the pistachio ice cream and jamaica popsicles for the rest of the year after we leave Mazatlan. This...More
