    Peccas Helado Artesanal

    After a hot and sweaty hike through El Yunque, this artisan ice-cream shop makes the perfect stop-off. All the flavorsome ice creams, sorbets, shakes and frozen yogurts are made from natural ingredients, so go for something nice, perhaps a zesty mango sorbet, or something naughty like coco-whiskey ice cream. It does delicious pancakes too.
