Too many people cat calling and inviting you into their store. Enticing people with drugs and alcohol in the middle of the day was odd.

Tons of shops selling the same stuff, street merchants hassling you to stop and look at their items, people asking if you want to get high...really didn't enjoy our time in this spot. Also, there are people that say they recognize you from the hotel just so they can get you to go to their "uncle's jewelry shop", for example.... More

Great selection of shops bars and restaurants with both a modern and authentic Mexican feel. We felt totally safe here in the daytime and equally so at night. We visited a few times during our holiday and enjoyed the relaxed vibe. Can't wait to go back!

We were just overwhelmed by the amount of stores and people trying to sell you stuff.. The prices are ridiculously high, even for the cheapest souvenirs and it seems like people aren't even willing to go down in price. Nothing genuine about this street. Feels like American street in Mexico. You can shop at h&m, Sephora you name it. If... More

All in all we had a great time here. There are lots of great shops to get all sorts of authentic gifts, accessories, memorabilia and apparel at great prices. There is also a great view and access to the ocean. Be prepared to spend the day here because if you have a set few hours, you won't see it all.... More

Restaurants (of different cuisines), clubs, bars, shopping, church, hotels and of course, the beach! My favorite place in the Riviera Maya. A very lively place! ❤️❤️❤️

I walked down this strip about 4 times and it's always active and so many things and people to see. I definitely recommend you walk there and eat at some of the restaurants
