When in Playa or Cancun this always is my first stop. The biggest problem is what to select, all the drinks are great. I always buy a few bags of the coffee and the cocoa to go. Ah Cacao is a must.

Although we have made several trips to Playa, it has been 4 years since we last tried Ah Cacao. There are so many places we want to try and so little time. It was a hot late September afternoon and we decided to try Ah Cacao again. Glad we did. The chocolate ice cream is still as good as we remembered. It is not creamy, just really good. We also bought 2 brownies to take back as a snack at our resort. Like that really happened!! I highly recommend Ah Cacao. Small stores (Yes, there are more than one on Fifth Avenue) but really outstanding.

Even in HOT June weather it's worth getting one of their hot cocoas - Mayan or traditional - and sit in their lounge and enjoy. We went there three times this past June, following diving, then lunch. Killer ice cream. Chocolate bars are forget-able.

Review for ice cream only. Tried brownie, hazelnut and coconut flavors and ALL WERE FANTASTIC! Quality premium flavors showed through and each for about 35 pesos each. The ice cream is not creamy, it's slightly thicker than a sorbet but really so good we went back twice. There are two locations on the strip and both have seating areas so leave room after dinner for a stop at this place. I can even say it's better than HD**z nearby, you will not regret it!

A must visit for us every time we are in the area. Serves coffee, and very unusual and delicious deserts. The brownies made with Mexican chocolate is to die for. Clean and affordable. The coffee come with a design drawn on top with the cream. You are able to purchase Chocolate items like soap and cream and baking chocolate
