  • The reputation of the quinta avenida is more to do. Mythical and very nice place, easy access and very vibrant. I particularly like the evening because it moves more, there's music everywhere and it's very busy. Well, the only downside, sellers who don't drop the song :) (but in the end, it's their livelihood). Plenty of places for a simple drink or a full meal... Street also leading to the dock of o "parte (ferry) boats for Cozumel I love me go on the quinta avenida at least 3 - 4 times per trip.
