There are many coffee shops in Playa del Carmen but for the best coffee head to Ah Cacao. If it’s a hot day don't forget to try the espresso frappuccino.

One of the best coffee shops in playa, their chocolate is excellent so anything you get with chocolate will be delicious, they also use local coffee which is yummy.

Every one of their locations is great. Americano and Mochas are delicious along with all of the desserts. We sit outside and enjoy people watching here in the mornings. So fun and enjoyable
