With the tourism rising, Playa del Carmen has lost its charms of being “the little fisherman’s village, south of Cancun”. The village has preserved a village atmosphere. The main centre of Playa is “Avenida Quinta”, Fifth Avenue, a pedestrian street that consists of shops and bars. Which is perfect for shopping with a man ;o). That same street is parallel and just one block from the beautiful beach. The nightlife is truly abundant. At sunset, you can enjoy a live concert at Fusion, accompanied with a fire show. There is lodging for every budget and plenty of good restaurants and bars of
