We’ve seen “POPS” stores throughout Costa Rica and were anxious to try it. We are a big ice cream family, and our expectations were pretty high maybe? But it was very average. Wouldn’t go back for ice cream at POPs unless there were no other...More

It's a local ice cream chain. They only sell ice cream and likes: milk shake, sundaes, cones, etc. The quality is excelent.

Pops seems to be taking over Costa Rica! Easy to find locations all over San Jose. Satisfied my sweet tooth!

Costa Ricans love this chain. You will find it everywhere. They are open late and with such bright signs, they are easy to find. I did not think the ice cream was all that noteworthy, however.

This is by far a really wonderful place to get tasty icecream. I love getting from here, I have probably came here about 20 times

It is Costa Rica's version of Baskin Robbins Simply wonderful! The Frozen Cappucino is excellent & the Rum Raisin ice cream is a must.

It’s been here forever Flavors are mild, milky and sweet. Favorite: Churchil a kind of milk shake made with colita ice cream that tasted like the famous granizados.

This place makes the best milk shakes. So many delicious flavors to choose from! We had a large order delivered to our office and they did a great job.

We went to pops about everyday when we are in Costa Rica. It is kind of a fun thing to do, the ice cream is good and not too expensive.
