Lots of shops many selling the same stuff. Got to imagine there are better deals slightly off the strip.

This is the street where everything happens in Playa del Carmen. There you will find the best restaurants, nightclubs (including Coco Bongo), shops and hotels (if you take a resort you probably will be far from it). The best time to go there is at night. We spent a week in Playa and our hotel was in this street, so... More

5th Avenue is a fun place to shop, eat and drink. With lots of bars, cafes and a few clubs. There are supermarket style shops rubbing shoulders with high end stores, and all the usual tourist shops as well. The ferry to Cozamel is located here as is the local bus station, as well as taxi ranks at both end... More

I really enjoy walking down this avenida and chat with the vendors. As soon as you show them that you want to converse in Spanish they are more interested in finding out about where you come from and what it is like there than selling you stuff. I am here to learn Spanish and they really appreciate when you just... More

This was actually my daughter & my, third trip to Riviera Maya Each time we go to Playa del Carmen so we have gotten to know it. At least we think that we know the good jewelry stores. Vendors seem to be honest. Very patient as most Mexicans are. Expect to bargain, it is part to the enjoyment

Visited 5th avenue in the evening , didn't think too much to it and only spent an hour or so in the vicinity, it was very busy in the evening so maybe went at the wrong time .Next time I will try in the daytime and do a bit more exploring . Just go and look for yourself as it... More

After dark when all the lights come on 5th ave is a site to see! Some of the locals can be pushy trying to get you into there shops to look at there stuff.... More

Very cute street with both touristy type shops and high end retailers. Lots of cute bars and restaurants. My biggest issue was that my daughter and I (2 females) were harassed non stop while walking down the street. Not scary but annoying and disrespectful. Also beware of men who hail you in the street and pretend they are employees at... More

So full of life and different cultures from all over the world. So many great restaurants and bars. All of the night clubs are conveniently located together on one street. Walk or taxi. No car needed in Playa.

Quinta Avenida in Playa Del Carmen did not disappoint. With miles of shops, bars, restaurants, and stores all in a pedestrian atmosphere, 5th Avenue provides a peaceful way to shop, drink, and dine in comfort. Taxi Cabs are available every few blocks for when you want to go back to your hotel. The people are nice and it's fun to... More
