"Quinta" as it is called by Playa del Carmen locals, is the sidewalk shopping area blocked off to cars along 5th Avenue. This commercialized Mexican tourist attraction can be fun, especially at night when the street lights and brightly colored signs and decorations make the place look magical. It's time to loosen up and have some fun! Everyone here wants... More

After a great day at the beach, it is not a bad idea to hang out, enjoy some drinks and some shopping in Quinta Avenida. Here you will find Starbucks, Forever21, Surf Shops, Columbia Outdoor Shop.....great places to enjoy some drinks and have something to eat.

This is a great place to spend the day in Playa Del Carmen, all the nice bars and restaurants make a great setting to hang out with friends. It is just a few steps from the beach so it is very well located.

I lived a couple of years in Playa del Carmen before; but always loved their art expos over the Quinta avenida street. Lots of good restaurants (local and foreign). Get your camera, and go for it.

We travelled to Playa del Carment right before a hurricane damaged the town. 10 years later, Quinta Avenida is grown more commercial. It's still a nice excursion to take while there.

Had a walk down 5th avenue having got a taxi from Ocean Maya Royale. We went at 10am which is a good time because it gets really hit and humid. It will take you about an hour to walk from one end to the other depending how many shops you look in. The shop owners can be a pain trying... More
