Friendly and great service and the drinks and chocolate was wonderful. We stopped by several time and on our last day bought gifts for our family back home from there.

I spent 2 mornings at Ah Cacao, on the terrace with my laptop. I love that they offer free WiFi, the connection was great too.

On the first day, I had the Mayan hot cocoa with a shot of espresso and the brownie, and both were absolutely delicious. On the second day, I had a chocolatine and a mocha, also very good.

The service was friendly, the atmosphere was relaxed, I really recommend going.

The terrace at the 5ta con 30Nte location is prettier and on a quiet street, the one at 5ta con Constituyentes has more of a busy city vibe.

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!

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!
