Absolutely the place to go while staying close to Playa del Carmen, a pedestrian only mile of shops, bars and food.

Nice walk . Lots of sunglass shops, plenty of cheap tchotchke shops very aggressive annoying vendors who ask you over and over again to buy. Hey senior massage Is something you hear over and over. Swim wear clothes expensive you have to expect that in a tourist area. Everyone in the resort has family that sell things on the street... More

5th Avenue or Quinta Avenida in Playa del Carmen is a destination by itself. One caveat--if you are there in the summertime, go late in the afternoon as the heat will make the visit memorable--but for the wrong reason. Four of us walked 5th avenue one afternoon and by the time we were at Constituents Avenue we were drenched in... More

We were dropped there by our cab driver and gave us 3 hours to spare but we ended up having enough with just 2. It is a commercial street where you can buy very pricey souvenirs mostly made in China and the likes. The street is very charming but not the guys trying to sell you everything (yes, everything). The... More

Shopping to your hearts content, plus bars and restaurants for miles. Don't buy at the shops closest to the beach, the prices are better further in.

Hundreds of bars, restaurants, cafes, discos, cigar lounges, and anything to have fun under the sun and moon all day and all night long. Very secure anytime

Playa del Carmen is such a nice mexican town. I love la quinta avenida, specially in the evenings when is lively and you get to have a nice drink with a nice mexican meal. They have all kinds of restaurants from what I saw but when in Mexico I prefer to go for the traditional fare. The street is colorful... More

Great place to stroll and bargain for souvenirs, as long as you don't mind the hawkers and the come-ons like "hey I was your waiter last night at your hotel, don't you remember me!" We just laughed and enjoyed the "game"!

I have recommended it many, many times. Many people I know have come here and loved it as well. It's like this, sure people call you over to try to sell you cheap trinkets. But where can you go, walk miles of cobblestone streets, with no cars to worry over, and everybody comes here to eat, laugh, shop a little,... More
