Visiting 5th Avenue should be on everyone’s list to discover when in town. If you are staying in the Hotel close to the 5ta avenue in Playa del Carmen then you are surely going to walk around here to explore. Make sure you visit 5th Avenue at different times of the day. In the morning it can be calm and peaceful place to take a coffee or run and in the evening it is very different because more people are out and there is even street performers and there is a special air of excitement.
5th Avenue runs from the same street as the Cozumel Ferry Pier and runs all the way through Playa Del Carmen and continues out of the center of town. Most of the tourist attractions are from Calle 3 sur (south 3rd Street) to about 40th Street. This may sound like a lot to see, and it is, but remember the street are just even numbers north of Juarez Avenue. So it is about 22 blocks of non stop shopping and dinning.
