Gelateria Tramonti

This is by far the best option for gelato and ice cream in Cartagena.  They offer a variety of 16 flavors which changes everyday.

La Paletteria

Check out their amazing variety of flavors of popsicles. My favorite is the tropical flavor, which is a variety of fresh fruit frozen into a popsicle.


Known for their brownies, Mila is a place to be seen. You will see locals arriving in their Sunday’s best while tourist (and myself) will come in for a good Sunday breakfast after a good Saturday night out.
