As you wander, keep your eyes peeled for street performers, ranging from fire breathers and painted mimes, to musicians and break dancers. And most importantly, don’t be afraid to journey beyond 5th Avenue. If you have the time, there are dozens of shops and restaurants located a few blocks on either side of Quinta Avenida, too. If you like trying different flavors of Tequila, you can stop by one of the many stores and find the flavor you like best.


Playa del Carmen is neighbored by multiple eco-adventure theme parks, awe-inspiring archeological sites, and an astonishing Caribbean coast. Options abound, including Xcaret’s eco-adventure parks, local coral reefs with SCUBA or snorkeling, Río Secreto natural reserve, or magical dining experiences at the Cirque de Soleil La Joya. With a beautiful coastal location for a number of daytime activities and an energetic nightlife that often features world-famous music festivals, you’re sure to find something to do no matter your taste.
