Description: The only lounge in Mexico serving up traditional South Pacific organic Kava root tea. Enjoy Live Music on Thursday and Sunday nights, local vendor market on Tuesday mornings and Daily donation based yoga. We also serve natural beverages & extracts, coffees, juices, smoothies, and light snacks in a relaxing, casual and friendly environment. We've got games, free wifi, and a great music selection. Kava is a soothing drink with proven medicinal effects to naturally help ease stress, anxiety, tension, muscle soreness, and disrupted sleep patterns. The special anti-depressant components can fight the "blues" and cause one to feel happy, relaxed and content. The sensations one has when drinking Kava, in order of appearance, are: slight tongue and lip numbing, mildly talkative and sociable behavior, clear thinking, calmness, relaxed muscles, and a sense of well-being.

“Why not!? (Quote from Marco)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Great atmosphere thanks to the interior and most of all manager Marco, he instantly makes you feel at home with his big, friendly smile and good vibes. He tells everything you want to know about Kava or the other healthy drinks. This place is perfect to relax and have a good chat or play a game with your friend(s) or with the staff. The drinks are delicious and fresh made! A place you will always remember!! Claudia and Alex.

“Kava Kasa - A Place That describes Playa del Carmen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

If you are looking for a typical atmosphere that really gives you an impression of how Mexico can be besides the touristic and sometimes crazy going 5th avenue. Youre on the right place in Kava Kasa! You'll be getting such a warm welcome from the most awesome host Marco who will do anything to make you feel comfortable in an environment that will get you instantly relaxt and feeling comfortable. Their Drinks are famous for the Kava Root, which is not only delicious but will also give you a very happy feeling. This is a place for family, friends, a meeting point before going out, you can even enjoy a game of Chess, Scrabble or whatever you like! A real Must experience for anybody who visits Playa Del Carmen

“Amazing place to relax and meet friends.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

The laid back atmosphere of the place will take the stress out of anyone. Doesn't matter if your with friends, family or preparing for a night out. Kava Kasa is a good place to start. The drinks that you can order there are different then anywhere else in the world. Apperantly the Kava is a natural tranquilizer, but there is tranquility enough at the lounge! A must see when going to playa!

“Best place to hang out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

This is an awesome place to hang out and drink kava. Marco, the manager, is super outgoing and very friendly. Don't forget to play the hook game. Also, best guacamole in Playa del Carmen! Just relax and enjoy kava!!!

“Relaxing Oasis that truly offers something different...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Personally, we love new experiences. Kava Kasa offers a unique drink that you can't find anywhere else - the root-based drink Kava that originates from Micronesia! Thus, the locale represents more than just a place to unwind, its offering you a completely new experience! The ambience and decor is warm, welcoming, comforting and relaxing. Between the ambience and kava... stress just melts away. Play chess or backgammon, catch a flick on movie night, use their computer to log onto the web or simply use it as a great place for social and/or business-related meetings. The healthy smoothies can also come with a shot of the "can't-get-anywhere-else" kava infusion. The humus and chocolate chip cookies with sea salt are also scrumptious.

They also host yoga classes and a weekly local market. Just so much to love about this place!
