Didn’t enjoy our walk down 5th Ave, bothered by too many people didn’t feel 100% safe, I was forced to give pesos to some guy dressed up. The locals have ruined it for themselves by hounding people who walk by. Otherwise if we would have...More

A surprise to be sure. I think that this street is one of the best places in Playa Del Carmen to be visiting. While people may stay in all-inclusive resorts visit to this place is a must. Though I have to say the mileage may...More

A busy touristy main street as one would see in most cities. Good to visit for the experience and perhaps to buy a souvenir or two. Can be quite crowded in the evenings.

They target you by the wristband from the hotel then course you into the stores and pressure you to buy. Don’t pay with credit card at all they will over charge you. My friend agreeed to buy a ring for $140usd and they tried to...More

5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen is the Main Street of this area. Plenty of stores and vendors to shop at. No shortage of places to eat. Use the US dollar, they will try to swindle you to convert to pesos.

One thing I did not like are the vendors are extremely pushy. They cannot take no for an answer. Some stores have people watching you and then approach you. The worst ones are the ones outdoors trying to get you in the store. The scenery...More

Best place is: CIGAR FACTORY. Corner of 5th and 16th (crossroad). They offer hand made cigars (thet roll them right there in the shop), as well as a variety of Cuban and Dominican cigars.
