Admire the backdrop of the Caribbean Sea while exploring the temples and pyramids of Tulum with a certified guide, then head to Coba to climb to the top of Nohoch Muul—the tallest pyramid on the Yucatán Peninsula. In the afternoon, take a swim in a 'cenote' (underground cave), sit down for a traditional Mexican lunch, and explore the city of Playa del Carmen. Round-trip transport is included.

So we read all the reviews regarding shopping at 5th avenue but decided to go anyway. To be honest most of the reviews were true but we were still glad we went. Yes the merchants will ask you to come in their store or talk to you as you walk by but what do you expect them to do. They are all trying to make a living right. I would say that not one merchant was bothersome. If you said no thanks they left it at that. If you did see something you like they were willing to drop their prices. If you buy something there make sure you haggle with them. It can be fun. As for the drugs true again. Guys will stand in the middle of the street and ask if you want to party of if you want blow or smoke. Just say no thanks and keep walking. Nobody again nobody hassled or bothered us in anyway. They are all there just trying to make a living. There is a police presents there as well. I would say if you really want to go to 5th ave then go. Don't let the bad reviews persuade you. Glad we didn't.

We are just back from our first trip to the Mayan Riviera where we had an amazing stay at an all-inclusive beach resort. The location initially concerned me because it was around a 15 minute cab ride from 5th Avenue, so I was worried we might be stuck in the middle of nowhere away from the action. A visit to 5th Avenue cleared up that concern. We went one evening for dinner and a stroll. It's a tourist trap, and not a pleasant one. We could not walk more than a few steps at a time without being asked if we wanted girls or to get high. When it wasn't that, it was being approached to come into a store or restaurant. It's not pleasant or polite. Rather, it is a very aggressive "in your face" approach and in some cases following you down the street haranguing you. At first we tried politely engaging with people, but that got us nowhere. Finally, the only thing that worked felt very rude by Canadian standards: purposefully ignoring people, returning no greetings, acknowledging no one, and looking straight ahead while keeping on walking. If it only happened occasionally it would have been bearable, but it's relentless - every few steps it starts with someone new. We lasted about 15 minutes, and then it just became overwhelming and was so stressful and unpleasant we found a cab back to the resort. I've always thought of myself as a resilient traveler, but that was definitely right up there as one of the most unpleasant travel experiences of my life, perhaps even the worst.

We spent 2 hours on 5th avenue. It was very long, because there are so many junky souvenir shops and people harassing you to buy their stuff or their excursions. And then the guys pretending to be your waiter from the hotel. One we actually did recognize, and we went to his 'grandpa's silver shop' to look around. I think because he did recognize us he didn't push us to buy. We looked and left. Very cheaply made stuff. If you want good quality silver jewellery go to the Tura Jewellery factory. Anyhow - then these 'waiters from our hotel' kept finding us and we finally figured out - we don't know these guys. But they all seemed to have a grandpa with a silver shop. We didn't enjoy this because a) we don't enjoy the cheap tourist stuff and b) we don't enjoy being harassed to buy or look or talk to people about their sales. It would be nice to be able to access and see 'authentic' Mexican artisans. Some came to our resort and had a little market there which is a much better option for Mexican tourist articles I think. Also there was a man taking photos of all the tourists coming to the drop off area. We really thought that there must be some kind of list provided of the tourists and then pictures of us so they know something about us. And then this is relayed down the line to merchants. One merchant actually mentioned that his wife was coming from 'Red Deer' which is where we were from. I mean really.... We said 'oh really' and he dropped the subject. That was just too weird.

When you go to 5th Avenue flip your hotel wristband inside out & no one will know which hotel you're staying at. It's amazing how well this works. They may still tell you they were your waiter but when you ask at which hotel they don't know what to say & the conversation is over - walk away.
