Fun stroll

Nice street for dining and shopping. Avoid the tour hasslers which can be annoying at times. But overall great safe place to stroll around

We stayed steps from 5th Avenue at El Tukan. Everything you could possibly need is within short walking distance. Cigar shop across the street, Lauros hand rolled cigars, cafe's, restaurants, massages, exclusive shops, tattoo studios, bars, street entertainers of excellent talent, live music, travelling Mariachi bands, street vendors and ATM machines and currency exchange on every corner. Tour operators abound... More

Lovely, very Lively Street in the center of Playa del Carmen. Upscale shops, regular local shopping, great restaurants and other businesses, two blocks from the beach. Amazingly clean and very pretty.

Be very careful. This is a crowded outdoor shopping area near the pier. Many local entrepreneurs and shop keepers are using any means necessary to get you into their "store." People pretend to be your hotel waiter and try to get you to visit their "families" shops. They are simply targeting you based on your hotel wrist band or the... More

Everything from nightclubs, minimarts, designer stores, silver, shoes, leather, shirts, massage, pottery. Every step is another excursion vendor, cigar seller, ferry boat ticket outlet, and fish pedicure stations. Evening brings out the restaurant menu hawkers, street dancers, painting exhibits, musicians and did I mention the trip/presentation / excursion vendors(10 every block) All a great time and well worth the visit....

Everything is sold along 5th. (Even that cab ride back to where you want to go after you've over-walked yourself into exhaustion.) You can have your feet nibbled on for a quick removal of dead skin. You can buy cheap souvenirs or more expensive gifts for yourself. Popular and established U.S. familiar clothing, make-up, perfume stores, that you're familiar with... More

Visited for fourth year in a row. Always new shops to explore and new sights to see. Like to end up at the beach at the southern end.
