Is it safe to shop and enjoy the nightlife on 5th Avenue?
Yes, I believe it is. I am not a person to get scared easily, but I am also realistic, some places are safer than others, that can even be in some areas in your own city. As a world traveller, it is my strong belief to use your common sense everywhere you go. Also on 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen, Mexico
