Ah Cacao was one of the best places we visited with a focus on quality products and friendly service, rather than profiteering. We went to Ah Cacao everyday during our stay in Playa Del Carmen.

The amazing Mexican chocolate is served in many different ways here, including body lotions of all things. The chocolate ans chili ice cream was to die for but my absolute favorite was the chocolate mouse. Made my eyes roll back in my head lol.

I have tried almost all of the cakes but the carrot cake is my favourite. Friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere, you must choose this place over the several Starbucks dotted along this road.

Stopped by here, with friends, while walking around 5th Ave. The service was great! We only had coffee & a sweet treat but the coffee was wonderful & the treat very tasty. It appeared to be very clean & had a/c. I will definitely go there, next year! Much better (and cheaper$$) than Starbucks!!!
