Description: 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!

Definitely stop here for chocolate and iced coffees/frappes. The chai frappe is amazing! As is the iced cafe latte. I also purchased many chocolates as souvenirs for friends/family. If you buy a certain amount, they will make offers like 'if you buy two more of the small chocolates, we can give you this larger dark chocolate bar'. This happened both times I went and I took the offer on the second occasion (which I was fine with since we wanted more chocolate as gifts).

The staff were all nice, friendly and English wasn't an issue. They accept visa also which was appreciated. The iced drinks are better than anything in Toronto I've had! Definitely go here! There are three locations also :-)

Unique little place with great idea located only in Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Sells everything chocolate from ice cream to mexican hot chocolates. We had the mexican hot chocolate and it was very different but great especially if you like dark chocolate only slightly sweetened and spicy. Would love a location near us.

If you are a chocoholic like I am, then this store is for you! I only had one item, but it was the rich, velvety chocolate mousse. And it was so good we went back multiple times during our week in Cancun! This place is located in La Isla Shopping Center and offers desserts, chocolate bars, drinks (coffee, hot chocolate, etc) and even chocolate bath products...yes you can get chocolate shampoo!!

This place is great! The espresso is so much better than Starbucks and the personal service is amazing. This is our 3rd time to Cancun and we stay at the Westin Lagunamar across the street. Our morning walk consists of a walk on the beach then off to Ah Cacao for a great coffee. Great way to start your day. If you want a McCoffee go to Starbucks, but if you want a coffee that is 5 times as good, wait a few extra minutes and come here. I am not sure what the problem is with some reviewers, but the brownies here are fantastic. Service is slower, but the quality is much better. Hey, you are on vacation... relax.
