  • toured it complete walking on Fifth Avenue's back and forth on a daily basis with my wife. long are approx 22 blocks in length. It is a commercial pedestrian street that has it all. restaurants, local fast food canteens, alcoholic beverages, smoking Cuban cigars, for breakfast, business premises of upscale galleries. brand and other, souvenir, clothes houses ice cream parlors. You could walk comfortable is complicated a bit the end of week but nothing in excess. many hawkers offering Tours, all very attentive. they offered and didn't bother. much British tourism... Americans. Argentine Brazilian. the afternoon and evening many venues offered music shows. and also the mariachis had several groups walking and tried to earn their place and some weights also. very picturesque throughout. very quiet. It is to return and recommend.

  • Highly recommended to go for a walk after a day at the beach. It is a long street full of shops, bars and restaurants. It is true that sellers are a bit heavy but passes them and now this.
