The most famous sorbets in Mérida, they have been part of the city’s history since 1907. The sorbets, “champolas,” and other treats have sweetened the taste buds of Yucatecans and visitors for 110 years. Go to any of their locations and order the flavor that you like the most. Among the most popular are “mantecado,” “crema morisca,” coconut, and mango. If you want to try something different, asked for a “pionino,” they are delicious!

Another place that has chilled the taste buds of many families since 1910 is Helados Politos. Did you know that since their opening day, they have been managed by the same family? Plus they are the ones who created the delicious “marquesitas.” An ice cream flavor that you don’t want to miss is coconut: yummy and 100% natural.

A new proposal that offers a variety of unique products. Among their menu you will find flavors that will make you think of various Yucatecan customs, such as “frijol con puerco” (beans with pork) ice cream (which, of course, you can only have on Mondays, just like the dish of the same name).
