This is located in the la Isha shopping complex. It's a small store hat serves variety of hot and cold beverages. The staff is great. They give you complimentary chocolate piece when you walk in. We bought chocolate and hot Mayan chocolate drink. Both were delicious .

Love Ah Cacao. The chocolate frappes are incredible. Also they sell the best chocolates at a reasonable price. All made with real cacao. Has great health benefits. Happiness is one of them. Totally amazing, only wish i was there right now.

This is a great little coffee/chocolate shop with plenty of things to get besides beverages or food--I got some chocolate soap! The staff are friendly as well. I recommend it.

My friends say the coffee here is good. But the chocolate is to die for. Can't go wrong with any of their locations. Will be back again and again.

Excellent ice coffee and other coffee and chocolate drinks and pastries. If you want heavier, there's Krispy Kreme just across from it.

This place is amazing. For half the price of US Starbucks you get way better coffee and way better service. For example, the employees are polite, friendly, and they bring your coffee out to you. We loved the cappucinos and lattes. Their chocolate is delicious also. Open at 8 am so that's a plus! Seriously thanks to these guys for... More

I love this place. It is in La Isla mall in Cancun and has sipping chocolate- forget hot cocoa- this is chocolate melted with a smudge of milk. We get the dark chocolate. Buy the chocolates and cocoa to bring home. It's a lot less than anywhere else and high quality. They also can make it with skim milk for... More

A great after dinner spot for a yummy beverage. Also bought chocolate to bring home for our daughters. They thought that the quality and flavor were great!

Nice selection of coffees, chocolates and ice cream flavors. They also offer 100% cacao hot chocolate with almond milk for those who are casein sensitive. The expresso coffee is just excellent! Nice setting and their prices are very reasonable, especially if you are using USD.

Forget Starbucks, this is the place you need your fix from. The most unique item on the menu is the sipping chocolate and it is probably also the best item on the menu. We had their ice creams, lattes, frappes, americanos and nothing disappointed. The ingredients are local and the flavours are fresh. The only thing we did not enjoy... More

Experience the delicious tastes of Mexican coffee and chocolate, direct from the plantation. In Ah Cacao, coffee, chocolate and vanilla are presented in all their mouth watering forms, from artisanal coffee drinks by skilled baristi, to soft, succulent, brownies baked daily. They even have have a range of chocolate body care products - you have to try the chocolate shampoo! And if you're concerned about your health, check out the cacao products with no added sweeteners. These give you all of the health benefits of cacao (antioxidants that fight aging, blood pressure reduction, increased mental acuity, etc.) without any sugar or artificial sweeteners. Best of all, thanks their fine-flavor criollo-type cacao, they taste great. The ancient Maya knew that cacao was something special when they began cultivating it thousands of years ago and you can enjoy their gift today at Ah Cacao. Don't forget to buy for your friends, family and pantry back home!
