Quinta Avenida

I would say this is a must do, a lot of fun with the vendors, they expect you to wheel & deal with them. very safe some items may be a bit pricey, but it well worth going.

Not worth it, cheap shops, cheesy restaurants, the ultimate tourist trap, no reason to go. Best to stay out of this town, offers nothing of substance

If you want action... great time, bars, good food then you must try the 5th avenida! Be adventurous.... Coco Bongo... Tabarnacos, la Vaquita, Palazzo... even Blue Perrot was great... don't listen to people and live!

We loved this area. It is a tourist trap area but it is a lot of fun. Plenty of variety of restaurants and good shopping. Great street performers as well.

Such a fun walk through the city and it felt very safe. However, food was more expensive right around the strip compared to a few blocks away.

Had a couple of days exploring all 5th has to offer, lots of knick knacks to bring home and restaurants to sit down and people watch.
