If you have visited Playa del Carmen before and spent time exploring 5th Avenue, we hope you have had a chance to make it to 38th street or Calle 38. This is one of our favorite streets and also one of the best areas for real estate in Playa del Carmen.
What do we love about it? In a word – EVERYTHING! Beautiful large trees line the street, giving you a shaded canopy to walk under from 5th Avenue to the beach. My favorite are the large ceiba trees, with root systems and branches that make you feel like you are in a scene from Avatar.
The restaurants in the area are some of the best and more popular – La Cueva del Chango, “The cave of the monkey”, is a fantastic spot for breakfast, Piola, is great Italian food, try the basil margarita if you get the chance and on the corner of 5th Avenue, Las Hijas de la Tostada, offering delicious seafood tostadas. There are shops offering beautiful art, hammocks and souveneirs to bring home from your trip.
