5th Ave....where there is always something going on. Would definitely recommend going here. We went in the daytime for shopping and souvenirs. Very safe. At nightime we had drinks and food and listened to the music. A lot of fun.

We have been here a few times, and while it is "touristy" it's such a great place to grab a drink and people watch, we always visit at least once! There is great shopping from tourist trinkets to high end name brands and everything in between. Restaurants galore and spas in between for massages. The best price we found was... More

Fun to walk and people watch and shop. Lots of excellent restaurants to enjoy. We were there for Carnival and that was a blast! Shop owners all want you to come in but a simple no gracias will suffice.

5th ave is a very nice place to spend your day and night (till 11:00 pm). There is a lot of restaurants and stores. If you like to shop it will be a good place to visit.

The only street in playa del Carmen with bars, restaurants and shops. It is much better than cancun, here at least you can have a drink on a terrace or walk on a pedestrian street. Though playa del Carmen is getting build up and has several towers under construction. And the water used to be turquoise...

Entertaining walk with lots of shops, typical Mexican things as well as upscale American shops. Food is much much less expensive the further away you are from here.

Just be prepared to ignore a lot of people. They are relentless. Its pretty mainstream now. Not authentic Mexico.

This avenue is full of restaurants and shops. Its very charming to the point I just wanted to go up and down just watching people passing by or the buildings. The atmosphere is so relaxed you can be whoever you want. Nobody seems to be paying attention .
