Fifth Avenue is truly the heart the Riviera Maya.¬† It’s a vibrant street with a large variety of things to do, ranging from artwork to lively bars.¬† It is a place where everyone can enjoy themselves; in the evenings you see retirees, young couples, groups of friends and families.
It’s definitely one of my favorite places to spend time – not only in Playa del Carmen but anywhere!¬† What’s great about it is that you can enjoy excellent food, good shopping and a very relaxed, international atmosphere only steps away from some of the¬†top beaches in the world.¬† Today and tomorrow, I’m going to post a series of nighttime pictures. Today’s theme is artwork and local crafts.
The first few pictures are from a store that has a neat mix of traditional, religious, new age and “beach-bum” style handicrafts.
This one is of a shop that sells lamps made out of sea-shells. (There are also some beautiful lamps made out of a kind of dried gourd or squash.¬† I don’t have pictures right now, but I’ll get some another time.)
This store sells handmade blankets and decorative nicknacks.¬† (Notice the ever-present images of the Virgin of Guadalupe, which can also be seen in the pictures of the store above.)
Finally, this is a roadside table (a favorite form of vending in Mexico) selling traditional, brightly colored bracelets and necklaces, as well as other decorative items made of beads and yarn.¬† Notice the traditional clothing of the man behind the table.
Tomorrow I’ll share some pictures of restaurants and the international atmosphere of Fifth Avenue!
