Every vacation destination has its own “Main Street,” and Playa del Carmen is no exception — we just call it La Quinta. It’s also referred to as Quinta Avenida or 5th Avenue. When you stay in a hotel near La Quinta in Playa del Carmen, you’ve placed yourself in prime position for beaching, dining, shopping and clubbing.
Playa Palms is located right on the beach, just two blocks away from Fifth Avenue. You can enjoy the peace and tranquility of seaside views, while a three-minute walk will place you right on the corner of Calle 12 Norte and Avenida Cinco. Let’s take a little stroll…
Plan to buy any souvenirs? Some of our guests like to hit Fifth Avenue right away to get their souvenir purchases checked off their lists. There are plenty of shops where you can purchase fun, traditional souvenirs for extended family members or co-workers, as well as higher-quality items for holiday gifts or to bring back to your home as cherished keepsakes.
Shopping your way. Need a little break from the sun? Looking for a new outfit for a night out on the town? 5th Avenue also has top class boutiques, duty-free perfume shops and jewelry stores. Visit the newest shopping mall La Quinta Alegría, where you will find iconic brands like Forever 21, Nike, American Eagle, Victoria Secret’s and Bebe among others.
Food and wine, anyone? You’ll have your pick of restaurants to choose from as you stroll from block to block. You can enjoy traditional Mayan Cuisine at Yaxche, or you can make your way a little further down for an upscale meal at Chez Céline. Visit our Dining out Guide on Pinterest with our favorite local restaurants to find more.
Enjoy the night life. If you think La Quinta is exciting by day, you should see it by night. You can sign up with Playacrawl to get an all-inclusive introduction to Playa’s favorite bars and clubs or visit Viva Playa for upcoming parties.
