I still dream of their Ah Cacao Chocolate Maya coffee and have tried to recreate it many times with no success. It's one of a kind!

“Forget about Starbucks!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

It defies comprehension that tourists in Playa del Carmen should flock to Starbucks instead of visiting one of the two branches of Ah Cacao. The caffè latte is great and their brownies are delicious! Forget about that American chain that is like the plague abroad and encourage local businesses!

“yummy!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Their coconut ice-cream is just smth incredible, once you´ve tasted it, you'll never forget!! + it's a perfect place for travelers to combine a cup of excellent cappuccino with buying some little gifts for family and friends (chocolate soap, chocolate shampoo, famous Mexican chocolate with spices, cacao powder and much more).

“hot vanilla!!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

coffee and cheesecake are great but my favourite is the hot vanilla!! it's the best you can have before going to bed, it's very sweet so little or medium is enough. the cookies are also really tasty!
