One of the few free things on Fifth Avenue. The park has shady and sunny spots to enjoy the beach and views, people watch or the frequent shows. We arrived just at the end of Dance of the Flyers but the friendly man passing the hat (be generous) stated there would be another show in 20 minutes. So glad we relaxed and waited, well worth a visit and a bit of time to slow down and watch the Flyers beading their costumes!

Great place to meet locals and many other tourists. Also lovely to see the sunrise from here. There are different attractions at the evenings. It is kept clean. Close to ferry to Cozumel.

This is a photo stop. If you're on 5a Avenida... why not. But it sometimes smells of rotting seaweed, often has strong Caribbean breezes, and always has vendors trying to tell you their ferry tickets offer something the others' don't. My recommendation is pass by for a selfie and then move on...

At night it lights up with activity. I want to say (maybe) we were the some of the only American tourists here on the nights we went. Which was refreshing, immersive. Its right off the main walking street very near the ferry terminal and very fancy shops but seems most of the folks who shop fancy ... don't go for culture.

Anyway - highlight is some 5 mayan guys who climb to the top of a very tall tower (no safety harness) bang a drum, 4 hang upside down from a rope and spin / twirl around as the tower unravels itself. Really cool. Later there are women sort of line dancing in traditional outfits. Later there are mayan "warriors" doing drum dances. And clowns doing a little comedy act. Off to the side I found a guy selling home made local treats. Just really different... with a back drop of the ocean / beach. At this part of the beach as the sun gets low in the sky is all local types and their children... and workers socializing and having a beer on the beach after a hard day of work... with a couple of American Tourists treated with grace ... just part of the mix.
