Merida is a wonderful colonial city that seems to be standing in time. In the midst of Paseo Montejo, you will find Heladeria Colon. Excellent ice creams, for those hot and muggy Merida nights

This is one of my MUST visit places in Merida. This is an old style ice cream parlor, and the ice cream is all fruit based, and natural depending on the fruits in season. My favorite is pitaya when in season, and then coconut, but...More
