You should go here at least once during your stay in Playa, but be prepared for a mixed experience. There is very little that is authentic about 5th Ave. There are the same stores you see in every city and then there are a lot of cheap souvenir stands. A few good restaurants pop up here and there. Mostly it is a great place for people watching. I recommend grabbing a drink at a cafe and taking it all in for a while. The street vendors can get a little aggressive offering everything from bric-a-brac to more illicit wares and substances depending on the section and time of day. Take it all in for an afternoon or a night out and you'll be ready to go back to the beach.

Be careful...they will take you your money if you let them! They WILL drop their price...you have to walk away for that to happen!

Hordes of tourists flood the streets daily. While they are a more attractive "European" set than Cancun, the feel is not much different. Make your vacation a true "getaway" by staying in Tulum instead. It's more central for the ruins anyways and has the best beaches in the Riviera Maya.
