  • went during the day and it was too hot visited during the evening after 6pm and loved it...nice weather, good food,music & ambience...  more »
  • A busy commercial street but also surprising, meets all desires for shopping or meals, you can pass at any time of the day, I did not go at night. It is quiet in terms of security.

  • The Quinta Avenida is the pedestrian in Playa Carmen. The road is safe 2-3 km long and has many well-known names to shopping. Brand quality is to have, but the price is more likely to look for in the higher segment. Restaurants offered some live music and good food. You will feel very safe on this road. The security is also reinforced by police presence.
