We had so much fun making ice cream with Paula! A super family-friendly activity that the kids will love. Paula’s place was easy to find, she was so kind, and gave us so many interesting facts about ice cream and its origin. She even had other activities readily available for when our 6-year old’s attention span went elsewhere. We really enjoyed this experience and would do it again.

If you're interested in food or the kind of person who takes cooking classes, this is a great experience. You actually get to make ice cream by hand -and a lot of it in different flavors so be sure to have room in your stomach for it. Also, Paula was a great host as she found a way to accommodate our Christmas Day booking during the Covid-19 pandemic. She was super friendly and energetic and always checked in to make sure we were having a good time. Definitely recommend if you want to try something different in Cartagena. Thanks Paula!
