After a long afternoon of shopping on 5th Ave, we stopped in for a Mocha Frappe to cool down. It was very busy, but our drinks were made quickly and had the best flavor ever. They have a large menu and the staff were incredible.

Everytime I visit Playa Del Carmen I always walk down 5th ave towards Ah Cacao and grab one of their chocolate frappuccinos with whip cream, my favorite!

It was the best hot chocolate I’ve ever tasted. I also bought some of the chocolate and it is absolutely delicious. The service was impeccable and the facilities very clean.
