  • Fifth Avenue is the major center of playa del carmen to tourists. Several restaurants, more expensive to cheaper, malls, stores and shops, people selling tours, selling drugs too, but just ignore it; they talk as if they were playing like this in the air for those who want to take ... has a siege of a few restaurants that want you to eat it at any cost ... ignore also. walk the street, choose what you want! Mexican the jap, the square pizza burger stand has all her!

  • I went there 2 times, day and night. Much better at night with all its lights, the festive etc. A lot of choice of signs that much not found or rare in France. Vendors who stop you to do tequila tastings, but it is not unpleasant. However be wary of some touts that you stop and tell recognize you this or that hotel to sell you for example Coco Bongo with a supposedly discounted tickets. Avenue is very secure, a lot of police officers with a lot of money, it's impressive.
