Good place to walk, shop, and eat.

Great for strolling and people watching. Lots of restaurants, shops, and Mayan street performers. A nice change from being at the resort.

5th avenue has lots of nightlife - plenty of restaurants and live music. Of course there are lots of people trying to solicit your business, but that is pretty normal for this type of area.

It's great for walking around and looking but overly priced. The vendors constantly try to get your business no matter what.

Tourist shops, American style restaurants, ATM machines on every corner, Mariachi bands and flower Sellers all over The place. Not to mention The poppers for clubs, disco and similar places... This street could Just as well be located in Benidorm or Miami. Nothing typical Mexican about it. No thx.

We headed here for an afternoon of shopping. Most of the souvenir shops are the same but if you paid attention some were definitely cheaper than others. Be wary if you are staying at an all inclusive. EVERYONE works at your hotel so stay away from those folks. Also be warned some vendors will try and sell you drugs. We... More

I am not writing this review because Quinta Avenida is unique. So, why am I writing this review? When I was planning our trip, I read reviews that made Quinta Avenida sound like Thunderdome.

You have to visit the market and go all the way to the end by the park. There was free entertainment going on when we were there. The markets are typical trashy Mexican markets, but you should at least go in and bargain a little for the experience. Remember, start cheap...real cheap ($1) and go up because you can't come...

Fun little boardwalk with reasonable prices, fun shops, and plenty of armed security (felt very safe).
