Even a few decades ago Playa del Carmen was one of numerous fishing villages – a totally unremarkable and secluded place. The reason for the sudden growth in the number of newcomers was in divers who found this place while moving from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel Island. The vacationers were so amazed by the quiet picturesque coast that they decided not to return to noisy resorts. Every year the number of tourists increased and that triggered the start of building of hotel complexes, restaurants and entertainment centers.
The 5th Avenue is considered the central street of the town. All main shopping and entertainment centers, as well as hotels, new restaurants and bars are located here. During you walk you can dine in one of the local restaurants where you will be offered to try traditional Mexican dishes, or choose souvenirs in one of the local shops.
