Very Good
It's a nice area kind of expensive but is normal since is in the 5th avenie a tourist area of playa del carmen. Great nightlife and tours available for all attractions across the streets and money exchange and very important police in every corner make you feel secure.

its cool but you need a large budget to do a lot of things if you go with a limited budget you wont get to do a lot of activities. The beaches are amazing!!

Contrary to the news the city is very safe. I was there to visit a loved one. I walked the tourist and residential areas of the city at all hours and did not encounter a problem

A bit laid back than Cancun. 5th Avenue is the hot spot that's just right for mature travellers.The beach is literally steps away from there.The action is just right outside your hotel entrance.

Many beachfront hotel resorts, close to one another, with plenty of accomodation options. The main pedestrian street is very long and has plenty of restaurants, shops and bars

Recommended in Playa del Carmen

There's a good selection of restaurants which are mostly comprised of Mexican, Italian and Seafood. There are lots of other options as well, and at different price points, so there seems to be something for everyone. I love that a lot of the restaurants are on 5th avenue, which makes for great people watching.

All the shops are concentrated on the long pedestrian street of 5th avenue, which makes it very pleasant to stroll and check things out.

nice many blocks walking mall with a variety of restaurants and shops / prices however designed for the higher US dollar

Walking through 5th avenue, drink and listen to music next to the beach, great massage

Nightlife starts late, so take a nap after spending a day at the beach.

El Oasis Mariscos (Playa del Carmen) - 50 Avenida Sur / Calle 12 Nte

The Mexican people are so friendly, funny and helpful
