Most people will know what they are up against when they come to a place like PDC and in particular 5th Avenue. For food, there are MUCH better places even only a few avenues away from 5th and which cost a fraction of the price. There are also plenty of touts hassling you as you walk down the road, which...

Pleasant street full of nice restaurants, bars and stores. It's lively and full of people. It's definitely worth a walk down the 5th and the other streets that cross the 5th (if you are looking for a party, look out for the 12nd/5th, there are a lot of nice clubs over there).

So much to see and do at 5th Avenue. There was something for everyone and it was an easy walk from the hotel to the ave.

Quinta Avenida in Playa Del Carmen has it all! Great food, shopping, night clubs & bars, with a healthy mix of tourists and locals. Hopefully, it will maintain it's real Mexican flavour, and not become another Cancun.

Many restaurants and shops along the street. If you are not good with haggling over prices you will end up paying much more. I always felt safe while there. Prices are in dollars!

We're from LA and recognized the same stuff we see on venice beach. Mass- produced, nothing handmade, all overpriced. Fun to walk, mostly not worth buying.

This is the main street for tourism in Playa del Carmen you can find many small shops bars restaurants and huge malls with all type of stores local and international, later at night when the sun goes down is when the street starts filling up with people, it's a very nice street for all your needs.

Yes, there are really many stores. But stores are selling basically the same things! Very touristy! I expected more and after few minutes of walking I realized we made a mistake by wasting our day in here.
