    5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen, Q.Roo is a street full of delicious restaurants, nice bars and shops where you can find from souvenirs to jewellery, places for all tastes, there is much to choose. The atmosphere very cool, Bohemian, beach, very cool! If you are lucky up to a wedding can touch you see, since there is a small church at the 5a Av. beautiful glass-bottomed with a sea view. If you like to walk will be enjoy, if no you are very good on the walk, can enjoy the panorama seated in a restaurant, bar and coffee while listening to music or taking an ice cream while you see happen to people. If you want to refresh you can go to the beach which is just a short walk. Now that if you like the compritas you can find glasses, perfumes, bags, clothing, exclusive brands etc. If day is nice, night is lovely! Dine on the terrace of a restaurant your favorite dish accompanied by a nice drink and enjoying the atmosphere... it is delicious, I love!

    It is a place mainly for shopping and walking, you find everything but if you are a national or Latin you will get expensive because everything is in dollars and the deal is not very good.

    Blues parrot was a crazy place to party. It was a club in the heart of the night life district overlooking the beach. The always had great parties, great acts and a great vibe. Its a shame it has been closed since January 2017 after the last BPM festival.

    It's right in the center of things, but it's also next to 2 night clubs a large bar which are open until 5am and on the main street that traverses Playa Del Carmen. Noise is an issue if your trying to sleep. Rooms were OK. AC was killer. There are a lot of options for places this isn't bad if you want to be in the thick of things

Where to stay in Playa del Carmen

Look no farther than the shorefront if you're after a luxury hotel or resort with a swimming pool--some of the largest and most lavish options lie a few minutes from the town center, offering spacious settings and impeccable views over the water. The town center--especially the main street, Quinta Avenida--brims with smaller and more budget-friendly accommodations, a bit farther from the beach but just a stone's throw from a wide range of eateries and night spots.
