This place en la 5a Avenida a Playa Del Carmen is delicious. The staff always have a smile, a contagious smile.

My husband and I stopped at Ah Cacao yesterday. We were recommended by our AirB&B host and we were definately not disappointed! Great chocolate drinks, good service, nice patio outside.

A nice cafe on 5th avenue, and a pleasant place to chill for a while. The menu is small, but the prices are OK and the cakes and coffees are yummy! Recommended for dessert or as a small brake in the busy streets of playa del carmen
