“Check it out if you're in PdC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Lots of shops and restaurants. All the shops are ridiculously overpriced, but you can find a lot of great restaurants for any budget. There are also nightclubs, if you're interested in that.

“Fun on 5th Ave!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

close to sunset fishermen. great shops, restaurants and dance clubs. can take ferry to cozumel. can walk from fifth back to hotel. get ready to have people invite you into their shops as you walk along 5th. they are nice but sometimes pushy. practice your bargaining skills :-)

“An Experience you should not miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Everyone who come to Playa needs to visit 5th avenue and their shops. It is entertaining and you can get some great deals. From restaurants, to bars, shopping galore. The vendors are fun and entertaining. The other day one of the vendors said "come and see my crap, its better than everyone else's." It is truly an experience you will never forget and should absolutely do!

Having come here for over twenty years I've decided I need to design my own t-shirt and point to different lines when I walk down 5th. It will read NO taxi, NO massage, NO jewellery, NO food, NO money. If you've experienced 5th avenue you will certainly understand this. Enjoy!,

People watching and shopping paradise here! Lots of fun and colorful---don't miss it.
I did not like the constant pressure from vendors, so I ignored them!

“Good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

A lot of shops and restaurants. Got ice cream at a chain ice cream store and they messed up my order like 3 times... Beach and the main plaza where the church is was awesome. Great view of the beach.
