Quinta Avenida ("Fifth Avenue") is Playa del Carmen's main drag, and provides an abundance of options for shopping, dining and entertainment. Just a short walk from the beach, this pedestrian-only strip stretches over thirty city blocks. This area really comes to life after the sun goes down. Whether you choose to dance the night away in one of Playa's nightclubs like Dubai or Coco Bongo, have a quiet drink on the rooftop lounge of Basico hotel, haggle with vendors over the price of a hammock, or just stroll and people watch, Quinta Avenida is the place to be after dark.
