I would definitely recommend seeing fifth avenue while you are in playa del Carmen. Lots of shop, restaurants and bars. A great walk in the evening. I enjoyed my stayed in playa del Carmen more than Cancun because of fifth avenue.

Great variety of shops, restaurants,bars, coffee shops. Even a Starbucks Shop people were friendly & not pushy. Felt very safe & comfortable. Day & night. Some of bars have live music outside. A nice touch while walking .Delicious iced coffees
