“Ahhhhddictive Cacao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The chocolate there is just amazing. Definitely one of the best, especially the "Chocolate Tradicional" and "Chocolate Maya". I never got to try their coffee, as I couldn't get enough of their chocolate everytime I went. I also recommend bringing back their cacao powder and cacao beans to enjoy when back home, or to offer as nice gifts. The atmosphere is relaxed, with a very friendly staff. They also have free wifi.

“Wonderful Hot Chocolate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

For years I have gone to Ah Cacao for brownies - very rich, very good. I don't like coffee (Ah Cacao is also a coffee spot) and never thought of myself has having a chocolate thing like many. Then one cool evening I decided to try the hot chocolate. It is wonderful! There are two locations on 5th Ave. now so it's easy to get to. The brownies are still good and they sometimes have very nice and affordable gifts. There is a really nice jewelry store across from the one on 5th and Constituentes.

“OMG chocolate to die for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Located on 5th Ave this is a MUST on your visit to Playa!! The best hot chocolate I have EVER had. The traditional Mayan hot chilli chocolate just slides down the throat like silk with just a little kick from the chilli as an after effect. I loved the hot choc so much I bought some cacao to take home and the very friendly staff were more than happy to explain how to make it. I will be back! Highly recommended
