Playa del Carmen’s 10th Avenue runs parallel to the city’s famous 5th Avenue, but has a more low-key vibe, a relief when you tire of crowds, malls, and big-name brands. This bustling one-way street does allow cars, but it’s also lined by a sidewalk and a nice, restricted-lane bike path. And despite the central location, just a block from the town’s most touristy area, the offering is largely locally-owned restaurants that go from cheap taco joints and Mexican bars to eclectic gourmet cuisine and smoothie stands, as well as a variety of convenience stores, pharmacies, banks, and some small hotels.
