We visited the beginning of May 2015. We were told by our holiday rep that 5th Avenue was one of the best places to go for shopping, but it was a let down when we go there. There were a few up market shops, but the remaining 90% of the Avenue is just the same old touristy shops. There are... More

There is a lot of restaurants and so on. Great nightlife too! Just make sure to don't get annoyed by all the vendors on the way. They will try to show you everything, just answer "NO, GRACIAS" and they will stop lol

Every other winter we come to Playa del Carmen for one to two months. Fifth Avenue has to be one of the reasons. Every year it gets longer and more colorful. Now there is a huge US/Canada class shopping center right in the midpoint. Shops, restaurants, etc. and even FREE INTERNET on the street!

Pretty, fun, but can be very expensive if you do not haggle. Everything is marked up almost 50%, but the good news is that you can haggle almost everything well under a fair price.

As one would expect, tourist traps everywhere! While I would recommend a quick stroll down the strip of 5th avenue, please be prepared to deal with a lot of aggressive people trying to lure you into their businesses. The place is dirty, crowded and, at times it can feel a little unsafe. You're better off eating and drinking at your... More

I have lived in Mexico for 12 years on a half time basis. I never tire of La Quinta.. and love to bring my visitors down for a look-see. The beauty of 5th Avenue is that is it always changing!! You will hear languages from every continent if you sit at a sidewalk cafe and people watch! Countless restaurants of... More

Fifth Avenue (Quinta Avenida) is one of my favorite places to hang out. I live here in Playa and still never tire of walking up and down this street. There are some trendy, touristy, and elegant shops-a bit of everything, actually. You'll find brand name outlets alongside typical Mexican wares. Great food and restaurants. NOTE: careful of some of the... More

A very pleasant evening exploring pedestrian only Quinta Avenida! Lots of nice open air restaurants, souvenir shops, upscale stores and a pretty ocean side park. Very clean, safe and family friendly.
