Sadly but true. Corsi is now closed. I asked the person at the front desk of the hotel and they just said they had shut down last month. It was the best gelato in Playa.

We bought three of the large cups which were a complete rip off. They are tiny, flimsy and don't even have their logo on it. We were too lazy to walk another half a block down to Haagen Dazs. Horrible mistake. The worst gelato I've had. I got the lemon flavor which I thought would be good. It was so... More

The Ferrero Roche flavour was good but not as good as the ones that you can get anywhere else. My sister had the Lemon flavour which I also tried and wish I didn't. It tasted like it was made from lemons that were past their prime. The cups are very small, unlike the attractive cups pictured in their photos. The... More

First off, the woman dishing out the gelato is one of the most miserable people I've ever met. We were friendly with her but not so much as a smile to us. Tried different flavours on separate visits and both times it was horrible. Waste of money. Will not return. Aldo's is much tastier.

Mango looked good, too, but I went for the house favorite based on other TripAdvisor reviews! Excellent with pieces of coconut.

They do it right. Not a million flavors, but what they have is excellent. Coconut has a good amount of shredded coconut. Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and pistachio are all well-done. Did not try the fruit flavors. Value is very good, especially for the cups! Located just around the corner of 5th ave, it's easy to miss the storefront. Keep your... More

We had so much ice-creams for 3 weeks in the region... My ranking would be 1. Corsi @ Playa del Carmen 2. Cool @ Isla Mujeres 3. Flor de Michoacan @ Tulum 4. Cozumel Palace / Panna e Cioccolato @ Tulum 5. Aldos @ Playa del Carmen Corsi is absolutely the best! Unlike Aldos which you can find 3 stores... More
