La Fuente, La Paz’s famous ice cream parlor, where Charlie enjoys cones with mango sorbet.
La Fuente has been in La Paz for around 25 years. It is a Sunday tradition to walk down the Malecon, grab an ice cream and watch the sun set over the water. At La Fuente, they also offer “Aguas Frescas” as well as ice pops of very unique natural flavors such as Jamaica, lemon, vanilla and for those who dare to try something new, cucumber with chile or mango with chamoy. Many people argue that the ice creams from La Fuente are better than the famous gelatos in Italy. If you’re having trouble locating La Fuente while visiting La Paz, look for the huge polka dot tree, it’s impossible to miss due to the colorful, well, polka dots painted all over its trunk.
