You could be anywhere. There is not much "flavor" of Mexico. It looks like a big shopping mall and it is a big shopping mall. The prices are way over what they should be. I know this because I live in Mexico for part of every year. The tourists are being ripped off.

Local merchants hound you constantly for your business; loud music from competing restaurants/bars; wall to wall people. If you want a quiet, peaceful vacation, stay clear of 5th Avenue.

I understand this is a culture aggressiveness haggling but if you really want to by something interesting go to the side stores galleries. Be careful the silver sold on 5 will wear off quickly a lot of stuff just from china cheap and ugly. Venture away much better merchandised

Playa has become the day stop for cruise people too cheap to take a tour. The town is more and more becoming a drinking and eating and big box America place. We noticed more old building destroyed to build big American shopping centres. Don't get it, you can shop at home. Your on holiday, enjoy the sun, have a drink,... More

Between the crowds and obnoxious salesman this is the opposite of a peaceful relaxing vacation on the beach. Go a couple blocks away to have a much better experience.

Lots of ways to spend your cash in this area. Both tourist and fashion shops. McDonalds with free wifi. Saw a demonstration of the flying men in the square, amazing.

Definitely an interesting place to explore. Yes, the vendors will call out to you, but a simple "no thank you" is enough to turn most of them away. Similar to an Ocean City Boardwalk adventure with lots of shops, bars and restaurants. Fun to do some "comparison" shopping for gifts, gadgets, etc. We went once on a Sunday and once... More
