I remember that when I lived in Asia I would DIE for Costa Rican ice-cream, their smoothness and amazing taste is unbeatable and Pops delivers every time ! With flavors that are made from real ingredients, amazing consistency and taste, it is almost impossible not to stop by every time you see one !

Clean and friendly locations with a clean bathroom. My father (90 years old) and me are traveling thru Costa Rica, this was an ideal spot to stop and enjoy a great chocolate milkshake and an Ice Cream cone. We will traveling from MonteVerde Mountain forest to Punta Arenas location. We have a nice break there.

When we first moved to Costa Rica we are surprised at how good their ice cream is here. We usually go with friends with young children. They're fun to watch as the kids can move around and enjoy eating ice cream yet still play with each other and no one is upset about the kids children's movements.

Great ice cream and desserts. It is a chain throughout CR but really good food. Great for a latte and chocolate cake stop.

This is the shop that has been around for decades. The ice cream is quite tasteful and they have a plethora of flavors. I will keep visiting them as they are the typical place to get the Costarican ice cream flavor.

This is an old Costa Rican owned business and it is great ice cream for very good price. They have local fruit flavor so that you can not find any where else. Try "cas" or guanabana", Just amazing....

Everyone in Costa Rica loves Pops, right? I think so. Today, a friend took us there for Cappuccino Shakes and they were delicious. Do not count the calories - just enjoy!!!
