“Like a Mexican Starbucks but with great chocolate.”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

I loved the little Mayan hot chocolate cup. Real melted chocolate with a little bit of a spicy taste. The name is a play on words of an ancient Mayan ruler, I think. Fun. Different. On the main drag near all the taxis.

“Chocolate fix”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Great tasting chocolate, none of that artificial cheap chocolate but sweet, dark smooth chocolate.

I had the mocha and the other half had a hot chocolate, it's kind of like the Starbucks of playa del Carmen. L

Definitely will try it again!

“Try the Brownies”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Stopped by for dessert on the way home one night, and really enjoyed it. We had a piece of chocolate cake and a brownie, and both were really good. If nothing else, get a few brownies to go.

“Worth it”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

If you're a coffee/chocolate lover, this is definitely a place worth trying. We tried several different things over our week visit. We thought that the frappuccinos and lattes were excellent, but caution trying the "caramelized goat's milk" as a substitution for caramel flavoring. It's an experience, but a very different taste that we didn't particularly enjoy.
Overall everything, including the atmosphere and employees, were wonderful.
