Im not big on chocolate, but I thought Id try something different... I wasnt impressed with the chocolate with milk, but did try the chi-latte at another location they have and was better. Unless theres not a starbucks nearby, I would go again.

I generally dislike the overly sweet hot chocolates available in North American chain cafes, plus the fact that I don't have much of sweet tooth, but boy am I glad I tried this hot chocolate. Not too sweet, with a touch of cinnamon, orange, and chili - it was delicious!! And everything on their menu looks reasonably priced.

This is at the back end of the very upscale Isla Shopping Center, and is one block from the beach. Easy to find, nice place to have a good cup of chocolate or a mocha and relax next to the fountain with the ocean breeze .....

I always visit to buy chocolate gifts for folks back home. Real Mexican Chocolate is different from the stuff you buy in the states. It is not even close to being as good. The prices are reasonable and they make an excellent Latte. I find a reason to stop off and get one while my wife shops. Well worth a... More

Ah Cacao is located in the La Isla shopping center which was directly across the street from the Westin where we were staying. We love chocolate and Ah Cacao did not disappoint us, although we only choose one drink from their menu, the chocolate frappe! It was so delicious. The chocolate was sweet but not too sweet and extremely refreshing.... More

Experience the delicious tastes of Mexican coffee and chocolate, direct from the plantation. In Ah Cacao, coffee, chocolate and vanilla are presented in all their mouth watering forms, from artisanal coffee drinks by skilled baristi, to soft, succulent, brownies baked daily. They even have have a range of chocolate body care products - you have to try the chocolate shampoo! And if you're concerned about your health, check out the cacao products with no added sweeteners. These give you all of the health benefits of cacao (antioxidants that fight aging, blood pressure reduction, increased mental acuity, etc.) without any sugar or artificial sweeteners. Best of all, thanks their fine-flavor criollo-type cacao, they taste great. The ancient Maya knew that cacao was something special when they began cultivating it thousands of years ago and you can enjoy their gift today at Ah Cacao. Don't forget to buy for your friends, family and pantry back home!
