“The BEST cocoa - Mayan chocolate!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

Love the chili laced thick Chocolate Maya - vegan! And, the Sipping Chocolate, and espresso cup of thick melted dark chocolate drink, also vegan. DON'T LOVE: On 5th av & 30th calle café - the next door fast food restaurant ruining the ambience with LOUD video TV invasion when they start up - no accounting for noisy insensitive neighboring businesses.

“Amazing Shakes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We usually buy our cocoa here when visiting but this time we got some chocolate and some chocolate shakes. OH WOW! They were wonderful. Great end after a massage at Veronicas (around the corner) then get your shake and get your taxi back to the resort. Great, fast, friendly service.

“2 visits in one day good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Yes, I did indeed visit Ah Cacao twice in one day! And yes I did go back a third time later in the week. And I was only in playa del carmen for 6 days. And I don't drink coffee. It was that good. Mocha frappe was the perfect solution for me to the hot, humid weather. My boyfriend chose iced vanilla latte and it was special.'The brownie was decadent. Boyfriend rarely indulges in chocolate and we were fighting over that brownie! We even met a local who told us this was the place for coffee. Yummy!

“Delicious brownie, even better service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

The service here is always great- from the person that takes your to-go order to the waiters that make sure that you are satisfied with your drink/dessert. Great place.
