If you're in Playa del Carmen, you will likely be seeing Quinta Avenida. It's a very long street. I found the southern end near the shopping mall the worst. Everyone wants you to shop in there store. At least some vendors had a sense of humor. Shouting, "I have nothing. Nothing you need." If you don't mind the stress of... More

I loveed 5th avenue. i started walking all of it, because yo can walk a lot and is everything beautiful. I stoped in a place named el gallinero du chocolat and ate a crepe and some chocolate. It was perfect for me because i saw a lot of people walking from a lot of places

The shop owners are way to pushy!!! If they wouldn't lie about knowing you and making rude comments I would be more inclined to enter their shops.

Nice shops and you can find some good food and deals on souvenirs. Do NOT buy "Cuban" cigars as they are NOT genuine, regardless of what they say!

It's a nice long street full of shops, restaurants, street vendors. The stores do have prices good ones too. The street venders and street stores no prices. You bargain over 50% of the cost they started at LOL.

The place is crowded with people and stores selling souvenirs and "touristic" items, and they say the price in dolars already. A guy offered to us marihuana and cocaine, it was a little bit strange.

Monkeys, boa constrictors, hawkers and shops, shops separated by restaurant after restaurant---some simple, some spectacularly beautiful and tropical---all overpriced, but you can't say it's not interesting. You'll probably have your fill if you stroll up and down over a couple of days, but for a short time it's enjoyable. Mix it with some beach time and an excursion or two... More

If you are into this, be my guest. A visit for a night is worth the experience, but having visited Playa yearly for over ten years, things have changed a lot! I feel developers at Quinta Avenida are trying to please a specific sector of tourism, losing it's natural essence. Prices have sky rocketed in that area, overpopulated with loud... More

You can find anything you can ever imagine in here. From delicious food, to animals to take pictures with (like monkeys). And there's a lot of people from many countries to talk with!

Expensive restaurants, loud bars and tacky tourist shops. Maybe some people's idea of tourist heaven but not mine. If you want something that is more local, you only need to go a couple of blocks back. That's where you will find me.
