It's definitely worth a stop here for an ice cream. There are many flavors, some new to the US palate. The icre cream is very good and the price is reasonable. Pops is very popular amongst the locals and visitors.

This has quickly become one of our favorite places during our stay in Costa Rica! The ice cream is amazing, and very reasonably priced.

For those who like ice cream, this is a good option. It's not cheap, but is not expensive either. I would say they are between average and good.

Pretty standard ice cream chain but they do have an array of tropical flavors that are harder to find in the United States such as soursop (guanabana in Spanish), cas, maracuya and others.

Pops ice cream with many locations is GREAT ice cream. One of my favorites is Chocolote almond. I have been coming to Costa Rica since 1999.

Pops has been in Costa Rica for at least 40 years and continues to offer unusual and unique flavors as well as everyone's favorites. All flavors taste like what they are. No artificial taste.

Nice little ice cream place with focus on fresh fruity flavors: banana, coconut, mango, strawberry were all enjoyed. Single cones run C1000 while double cups are C1700. There are tables on outside patio beneath roof; nice view.
