Ephemeral Peso Ice Cream (This is important)


In what appears to be a closed down storefront in Viñales, there is an ephemeral ice cream shop. The door opens a few times a day like magic to reveal an ice cream machine. It has no set schedule and closes as soon as the ice cream sells out, usually in less than 10 minutes. 1 cone goes for 1 peso nacional (5 cents USD) and it is awesome. You will know it is open because everyone will suddenly have ice cream. And then they won’t anymore. So if you see someone with a cone, RUN! It will be worth it!

This is the ice cream shop. There was no sign, just a line of excited children and their equally excited parents.


Happy travelers.
