The 5th avenue is the spinal column of Playa del Carmen’s nightlife. It is there where all the magic begins; all the restaurants come to life at night and any bar can be the ideal place to start the perfect evening.
The fun never ends in this place. From the very moment of your arrival, you will feel the contagious and extraordinarily relaxed atmosphere, surrounded by live music of all genres and styles: from DJ’s, to rock bands, acoustic, salsa, and mariachi. Check uptown jungle.
As you walk down the 5th avenue, you will notice the great variety of commercial malls, department stores, shops that offer tequila and mescal tastings, exclusive boutiques, jewelry stores, bars, and restaurants that offer food from all over the world: Mexican, Italian, Moroccan, and even Thai.
The 5th avenue never sleeps. You will see that there are streets, such as the 12th, where you start seeing the action after the sun sets and the moon shines, and some of the main night clubs start to come to life.
The avenue is so versatile that you can be amazed by the performances of street artists that present fire shows; hip hop dancers, characters you can take your picture with, like The Mask, Iron Man, Jack Sparrow, and many more.
Of course, art cannot be missing, and a great deal of it can be found everywhere: in streets painted in different styles, murals, graffiti, handcrafts, jazz bands playing at the entrance of Calle Corazón.
This world-famous avenue is undoubtedly a touristic spot you cannot miss in your next trip to Playa del Carmen.
