If you like popsicles, you HAVE to go to La Paleteria by Alex. They rotate among 60 flavours, giving you the best combinations like coconut lemonade, strawberry kiwi, pink lemonade and of course, nutella. Which can all be dipped into milk chocolate or lemon flavoured chocolate and topped with sprinkles, gummy bears, chocolate chips, crushed oreos or more. All in really cute and cheerful shops (one in Quito and one in Cumbaya), which are always full on a sunny day.
Not only do they have delicious popsicles that will satisfy your sweet tooth and help you cool down, but also they have some for your dog!! So you can both feel instantly refreshed. They carry two flavours for your little one: watermelon and banana. So if you are walking around Carolina park or the ciclovia in Cumbaya, make sure you stop by this place
