The chocolate frappe is a divine concoction with your option of milk: lactose free, light, soy or no milk.
What blew our minds, and taste buds, is the Mayan Chocolate as an ice cream . The blend of spices and Mexican cacao is an amazing combination. If you order it , it comes pre served in a small clear plastic container with a lid. It can be order as hot beverage and it is served in a espresso cup. We also order a latte and it was extremely good.
Service is outstanding ( thanks Lucero) and their WiFi is strong.
If chocolate is your passion, do not leave Playa without enjoying it.

You can have Starbucks anytime, anywhere but when you come to Playa, run, don't walk to Ah Cacao. My husband gets the hot Mexican Cocoa and loves it. Rachel Ray loves it too! I love the heart design made on the top. It makes for a perfect, delicious coffee. Outdoor seating at both convenient locations.

Coffee here is the best I've tasted and great value. My only minor criticism is that the food options are too limited and speed of service could be quicker.

Ah Cacao is really a gem among the many commercialized coffee places these days. Coffee and desserts are truly delectable. Great to lounge around and people watch, with one of those amazing iced drinks made with the best tasting chocolate and coffee in hand. Prices are reasonable and service is good.

Love the Cacao powder they sell and have used upon my return to make many more chocolate drinks and desserts. Always decadent and brings you back to Mexico!

Highly recommend a stop and have a special treat.

This is always our first stop when coming to this region. The mochas are second to none and the chocolate is out of this world. The mousse is the best I've had and the brownies are amazing. There is an air conditioned section or you can sit outside. They have free internet. Starbucks is half as good and twice as expensive. Do yourself a favor and check this spot out!!
