This used to be an interesting, exciting and fun pedestrian shopping strip. It has now evolved into a gauntlet of abusive hawkers, high street mall type outlets, and jewellery shops with outrageously overpriced items. Beware of the BATH & BODY WORKS store. The staff seem to think they're working in Channel and are full of themselves with attitude and camp... More

Everyone was my server or bartender from last night! Yes, there were many pushy vendors and they were all there to rip us off! I've visited different parts of Mexico, but there were no deals here. Everything was way overpriced. But we had a very yummy lunch and it was nice to get out of our AI resort for a... More

Visited 5th Ave 3 times this trip as we rented a car to get out and about. Some beautiful cafe's, restaurants & bars, look nicer at night when all the nice lights are on. Each time,, hello, remember me, Carlos from your hotel etc, Didn't really bother us as we kind of ignored it, all the same stuff everywhere so... More

This is where you can go to do some shopping and dining. There are many shops to venture in and out of. Dining you will find a mix of different restaurants for whatever your seeking. You will be offered just about everything as you walk the streets here so pay attention and at certain times keep walking.

BEWARE OF THE HOTEL WAITER CON. As soon as you get out of your taxi or bus be aware that at least one random guy will come up to you really friendly and polite and say "Hi how are you? I know you from my hotel...I am Jose (or whatever name he chooses) from The Princess (or whatever hotel you... More

Everything about Quinta Avenida spells tourism. Personally found the branded stores ( old navy, pull & bear, bath & body works etc) to be more reasonably priced and at par with their counterparts in other countries than the local shops that sell everything from waterproof mobile covers to cheap souvenirs and rates can vary depending on where you are( farther...

Lots of interesting local shops which seem to have the same kind of souvenirs. Be wary of people who try to drag you into their jewelry shops by telling you that they saw you at the pool. Most of the jewelry is fake. Either the stones are synthetic and or they are not set in gold or even in silver,... More

What a great pace too visit , lots off good shopping and you feel very safe walking day or night, loads off great eating places you do get harassed to go into the shops but you just say no thank you and that's it loads of taxi along the way.
