Playa del Carmen's shopping district is the pedestrianised Quinta Avenida, or 5th Avenue, where shops have people posted outside to encourage people in. Mariachis and native performers are also found in the late afternoon. Silver, pottery, blankets, hot sauce, tequila, vanilla and the usual tourist tat to be found here.
The town also has ferry services to Cozumel Island but we didn't bother going over this trip.
