“Playa del Carmen’s main dining, shopping and entertainment district is located on the vibrant, pedestrian-only 5th Avenue. At the South end of this charming, cobblestone street is a central square in which visitors can view various free performances throughout the day. The ‘Voladores de Papantla,’ (Mayan Flying Men) climb an 80-foot pole and play traditional Mayan music with flutes and a drum. Four of the five men, spiral slowly downward, suspended upside down by their feet with a rope, which is attached to a rotating platform at the top of the pole. The 5th remains at the top to play the music while the others descend down, flying in a circular motion.”

Italian Restaurant
“One of the best Italian restaurants in Playa! The restaurant is clean with a warm feel to make you feel comfortable. The staff is very helpful and you should be able to get some help in English if your Spanish is not up to par. The menu is extensive with a selection of salads, pastas, and pizzas. We never get to try enough food at one place but some of the pasta dishes coming out of the kitchen looked very delicious. And don’t forget dessert like the one in the photo. Warm chocolate lava cake with ice cream! Don’t worry you can walk it off on 5th Avenue after dinner. I recommend you always make a reservation for this restaurant!”
