My wife and I have been visiting Ah Cacao Cafe during our trips to Playa Del Carmen! The chocolate is amazing and their brownies are to die for. They are very inexpensive when comparing to a Starbucks with much higher quality and great service.

We stopped at the stre at 5th and calle 38 in Playa del Carmen. We had a Mocha Frappe . It was Very Good! We also sampled some chocolate.The 72% and 100% chocolate are extremely good. Its a great place to rest from the heat And have a cold drink. Prices are very reasonable.

A great place to take family for a rich, chocolate dessert! The cakes and chocolate drinks are well-made... And a table on the street makes for a good people-watching position across from the mall.

Drinks are great. I got the chai frap. Place is kind of small. Carrot cake was good. Definitely get the chocolate covered coffee beans.

I love chocolate. However, I got a frozen cold chocolate drink. It was chocolatey, but not very special. I decided not to return.
