One of the best dessert places you can actually go to, the cakes, cookies, pies and everything she sells or not sells, she does custom made orders and everything is delicious and beautifully done! I love Karlitas! 😍🖤

Happened upon a little coffee stand in Mahahual next to soccer field. Fabulous local organic coffee and one of a kind, freshly made pastries. Beautiful, artistic key lime pie!

A perfect place with yummy options - whether cheesecake, bagel, smoothie or coffee. Popular among locals. A good wifi connection which isn't true everywhere on the malecon. Don't miss it!

Karlita's sweets were legendary. Sadly, the Bambu Hostal that now occupies the space offers pretty much only coffee, espresso, lattes. Those are nice, but that's almost all that is available.

Do not have the cheesecake! It's beyond delicious and I wish I had never discovered it because now I want (at least) a piece every day. But so are the heavenly smoothies -- and probably the many other sweet delights that I have not (yet)...More

I feel so bad that I am just getting around to this review, as I left Mahahual just over a month ago; however, I still crave Karlita's cakes! I was in Mahahual for almost 3 weeks and went to Karlita's at least once a day...More
