If you are traveling to Playa del Carmen, you will most likely spend some time on the famous Fifth Avenue (La Quinta Avenida). It is the resort town’s artery. It is magnetic. It is lively. Tourists usually frequent the first twenty or so northern blocks...More

There are some great restaurants in the area, especially off 5th Avenue, however the shops are very redundant with very little variety. After you go into a few shops, you've seen it all. The prices are also absurd! If you want to buy a bottle...More

For some reason I thought Playa would be less touristy than Cancun when I planned our getaway and skirted us down here immediately after arriving. 5th Avenida is convenient- we were able to walk 10 blocks along here from the bus terminal to our AirBnB...More

It’s such an authentic Mexican experience! I could do without all the high pressure sales techniques but it’s just so funny it makes me chuckle. The shops are good, lots of choices. They will all bargain with you if you try, or they will take...More
