Coffee is a dodgy subject in Playa. I've been to most of the main coffee places in town and it has been an extensive search for me, being an educated coffee drinker with appreciation for high quality. Essentially, here is the breakdown of my research to this point: Starbucks -- Expensive, baristas not very knowledgable but deliver a medium quality... More

At sometime during our days of wondering around on 5th. Ave we'd make our way to what became OUR cafe. Great coffee with a great atmosphere. Nice bathrooms too.

Great location, free wifi, chai vanilla latte, baguette sandwiches. Super cool air conditioning. Wish I was there right now! Can't wait to go back - please give this place a try - you won't be disappointed - massive cups of coffee and delicious chocolate iced drinks.

Just came back from Playa and half way through our trip we discovered Luna Azul! We were hooked on the coconut lattes! They were amazingly smooth and flavorful and worth walking in the July heat!!! The cafe is cute as well. They have books and some games which we did end up using - playing UNO with my two boys... More

Just around the corner from my place. Great find! Really good coffee, lattes, espressos and some unique drink combos too. Perfect for hanging out, chatting with friends, reading a book or working on your computer. Good food too! I've tried some of their sandwiches and desserts. Happy with all! I recommend a stop to hang at Luna Azul!

Our cab dropped us off right in front of Luna Azul - and what a stroke of good luck - because this is a great find. My two boys, wife and I felt absolutely at home and very welcome. We were... More
