I have been going for coffee to Ah Cacao and it has resulted as one of the most consistent places of Playa del Carmen. Consistency is a very important element in a business and I have seen many places rise and fall, this is not the case of Ah Cacao. This is a company that came to stay and I... More

Stopped in to this chocolate cafe while in Playa Del Carmen and omg. I had a chocolate iced coffee and it was so damn GOOD! I have an iced coffee everywhere I go, so I know my iced coffee. Besides the one I make, this one was the 3rd best! Yummy!!!

Amazing coffee and hot chocolate. the cakes and biscuits are fantastic. Always crowded. Always remember this place when i think of Playa Del Carmen. Casual atmosphere and much better products than star bucks. I would love to go there again one day.

Yum. Definitely a nice cafe to visit for a coffee and desert. They have a few in Playa on 5th Avenue and sell local chocolate.

Great coffee and the Mayan chocolate is delicious. The ice cream is better than the nearby Hagen daz and local gelato stand.

This was by far the best coffee we had in Playa del Carmen. On 5th avenue and walking distance to Reef Coco Beach Hotel. We found this place late in our stay but we were back there for the coffee. The chocolate is very good too. Nice find and treat for coffee-a-holics! Pick up some gifts as well.
