There are some nice things to be purchased at decent prices if you have the patience to go through lots of stores and the sales pitches and haggling. It's a nice walk with a mix of local flavor and international chains - you just need to accept the active recruting into the stores and the haggling as part of the... More

Shopping of all types, all prices,good food sometimes expensive. You can just sit and watch...take one or two trips around to choose your restaurant and store.

What a shame that the ministry of tourism can't control the continuous bombardment of these people trying to sell you stuff. It was such a turn off in such a nice looking place. Some of these guys were following my wife and I from store to store, even though we told them in english and spanish no thank you....we must... More

Shops were fun and colorful and full of anything you could want. Workers will ask absurdly high amounts to settle for a lot lower prices, except the bigger stores they are like the walmarts of 5th ave.

My family and I spent the early part of the day exploring and shopping on 5th Avenue. For the most part the stores all sell the same thing, price difference minimal. If you are there in the daytime and are just looking to buy some souvenirs and grab a bite then this is the place for you. The only downside... More

Full of life, bars, restaurants, shops and travel agencies but it's very hard to pass quitely and take your time as every single seller is trying to grab your attention and sell you anything.

Souvenir shops all have the same merchandise, at the same price. Yes, a bit cheaper than your resort shopping center, but if you don't buy much, and add taxi fare, you don't get any discount. Ice cream parlor charging ice cream by weight (!!!) so we ended up paying $16 for 2 ice cream cones, that's a joke. Very busy,... More

This street is terrible. You can't walk two yards without some barker trying to get your attention... sometimes in a very rude way. E.g. Barker: "hey, why don't you buy your girlfriend XYZ?!" My reponse: "no, thanks." Barker: "oh, she isn't worth it huh." Every other store is the same, selling trinkets, booze, and the same fridge magnets you saw... More
