Fodor's Expert Review Heladería Coromoto


At least once during your sojourn in Mérida, head to Heladería Coromoto for a scoop of ice cream with the flavor of rose petals, local beer, or even chicharrón (fried pork skin). Proprietor Manuel S. da Oliviera holds a proud place in the Guinness Book of Records for producing the most flavors (860 and counting). Dare your companions to sample the sausage or smoked trout, and order for yourself a cone topped with ginger, corn, arroz con leche (rice pudding), or plain old strawberry. We were tempted by the more mysterious flavors, such as El Nido de Amor ("the nest of love") and No Me Odies ("Don't hate me").
