5th Avenue is always interesting to walk. We were there in June and it was hot out. It was nice to walk past air conditioned stores with their doors open. There are many new, updated stores on 5th Ave and more "malls." The original "flea market" area remains near the dock but the rest of the Ave has new updated... More

We went to Playa del Carmen to visit a museum and wound up running into "Carlos" whom we had met at a Cenote selling jewelry. He asked us to come to his "mother's store" and look at more jewelry. We went and picked out 3 beautiful rings. He had me fill out a receipt with my name and address for... More

My husband and I were in Playa after finishing up a tour and decided to have dinner and do some shopping before heading back to Cozumel. We were surprised at how lively it was for a Monday (as were a few shopkeepers we spoke to, lol). We had a really great time strolling along the street, doing some shopping -... More

This is a narrow street intersected by roads some leading to the beach. Lots of activity here, vendors selling tours, trips etc; souvenirs, Tequilas, cigars, clothes. There is a mall which is nice. The whole stretch about 2.5km so you cash walk this during the day or at night. It comes alive from 5 pm to midnight. Lots of bars... More

Definitely a place to stroll, find a restaurant, and look in many many shops. 50% of the shops are tourist traps, but the other 50% provide some unique opportunities to "shop local" and find a great souvenir for your trip. I have been here twice. I (nor my female companions) have never felt unsafe or scared, despite the crowds. There... More

Nice way to spend an evening walking fifth ave.it's gotta be a mile long shops and resturants and even a few spots to stop and sit and see all the goings on.

We found a few good prices here, but in general prices for the same item are higher than in other parts of Yucatan or even than other neighbourhoods of Playa del Carmen. Of course a visit here is a must, you could visit Frida's restaurant to see 5th avenue from above.
