We made frequent visits to Ah Cacao during our 10 day vacation to Playa. It was fun to come here after dinner on 5th avenue and my favorite item on the menu was the chocolate mousse! They also had some yummy ice cream flavors, including my favorite - hazelnut! Reasonable prices as well.

Highly recommend this place for a quick chill out or takeaway! I ordered a frozen frappe and it blew other major chains out of the water! Not to mention at about half the price!
