  • Directly in the hotel zone of Playacar. Some shops, which are all more or less same offer. Very nice, but nothing special

  • Stopped in at the Starbuck's at Plaza Playacar and met a very nice Canadian Couple. Shopping is fun there as well! Have a beer and browse the wares. You'll have a great break from the resort.  more »

  • Convenient location for the Playacar Resorts, lots of souvenirs and a convenience store for cravings or first aid necessities
  • It's ok. Plenty of shops. All selling the same thing.
  • go deeper into the 5th, somewhat rip offs but cool people
  • Nice selection on little shops people are friendly. And if you want to book an excursion go see Leo at his stall very nice man.
  • It's the only shopping center in Playacar that is conveniently located for the big named hotels in Playa del Carmen. This is where non- walkers or adventureless tourist go to do their souvenir shopping.

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.
