When you are in riviera Maya, and you want to go out the hotel for shopping, this is the place to go.
Its a long street with all the big brands stores, but also the mexican crafts, so you can get anything.

There was no way we were going to miss walking 5th Avenue at least once during our stay in Playacar. It was pretty much what we expected. Shops, restaurants, bars, street vendors, all stretched out on a long pedestrian-only walkway. LOTS of junk, but some...More
You'll be amazed how many people stop you claiming to be your waiter from the hotel and to come in to the store they work at on their day off - comical! It felt very safe on 5th Avenue and lots of gift shops and...More
Strolling along 5th Avenue is a must if you visit Playa del Carmen. I like the area around 38th Street the best, but it all depends on what you're looking for. Lots of shopping along there plus good places to eat.
Beside the beach there is a street wich is the main atraction of playa del carmen, its long enough to keep you entretain for a couple of hours.. be careful if u r a shopaholic the prices over there are little bit elevated than other...More
Nice area close to resort with great shopping, spa services and restaurants! Take a little time to get a massage at Essence Spa. Although very secluded, they offer the best massages!

Quinta Avenida, or Fifth Avenue, in downtown Playa del Carmen has something for everyone. My advice would be to get out, walk the street, and soak it up. Sure, there are street vendors trying to sell you everything from tequila and blankets to Mayan masks...More
It’s a fun shopping experience but if the pushy vendors would leave me alone I would venture into their stores. I only went to stores where I didn’t feel pressured by the sales people. Don’t fall for I was your waiter, etc they are looking...More
We spent a considerable amount of time lazily walking along the multitude of shops and restaurants on the avenue enjoying the vendors all of the different crafts and especially the local food. Nothing to rough and not much pressure to buy or stop in the...More

The local police will threaten to arrest people if they don’t hand over their money??? WHAT???? Mexico is not precisely the most safe place in the worl but this type of situations does not happen at the fifth avenue. It's a place full of tourist and totally safe to walk. It's a lovely place actually where you will find lots of shops, restaurants, bars, discos and more. I've been there 6 times, trust me.

They accept US dollars and MX pesos. You’ll get a lower exchange rate in the shops so change your money before arrival. If you wait until in Mex, don’t use exchange services that are everywhere. Find a CiBanco for the best exchange rates (must have your passport). There is one on 10th Ave & 1st South, near entrance of Playacar. Another on 10th, between 14th and 14th Bus.
