A stroll along la Quinta

We start with the most important thing: you must have a stroll along “la Quinta”. It is important to walk through it from one end to the other to make the most of the visit, even if your plan is to drink, to eat or to go shopping.

If you have been here before, you will notice a big change from the moment you arrive. The floor has been renewed with a more modern paving stone that gives it a fresher and more avant-garde look. Walking down “la Quinta” will be a delight.


Founders Park

A completely renovated park. Forget about what you remember, no matter how many times you visited Playa before, it will feel like the first time! The park has been redesigned, making it a completely new attraction. But don´t worry, “el portal maya” or “Arco de las sirenas” is still in its place, so you can take the famous picture at the portal and, if you already have one, update your Instagram profile with a new picture of the park.


Paseo del Carmen

It is located at the beginning of the street and connects 10th Street to 5th Street. It is a good place to start your tour, for it has some of the clothing and souvenir stores. If you want you can take a frappé at Starbucks to fight the heat. Paseo del Carmen is a calm space, the perfect choice to spend the night if your plan is not to end up in a club well past midnight.


Pictures with costumed characters

This is certainly a place you cannot miss, your Instagram profile will thank you.


Bars, restaurants and Calle 12
