Paseo de los Artistas on 5th Avenue

If you’ve found a piece of real estate in Playa del Carmen to call your own you might be looking for some art to really make your condo, house or villa feel like home and express your personal taste. Whether you’ve bought something that came fully furnished or you’re starting with a clean slate, finding a piece of art that you love can add to the ambiance of your condo or villa and express ‘YOU’. 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen offers great art shops with unique pieces, photographs and paintings.

The Paseo de los Artistas (Tour of Artists) is a great place to start your search, enjoy local art as the sun goes down on the Mexican Caribbean. Every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, you can find art in downtown Playa del Carmen, on 16th street between 5th and 10th Avenues, from 5 until 10 pm. As many as 40 local artists have their wares on display.

There are additional art stores up and down 5th Avenue that also offer unique pieces for your home. Near Ah Cacao on Constituyentes is Ambiarte, my favorite pieces here are the Catrinas – they are so intricate and beautiful.

Another new art store near the north end of 5th Avenue on 40th Street is called Guelaguetza Gallery, right across the street is the sister store 5ta Hacienda Store. They have some beautiful pieces that immediately caught my eye, a large wall piece that looked like a school of fish; it would be a beautiful piece to hang in your new condo. I could spend hours looking through everything; I love the unique pieces of art that is offered in Playa del Carmen.

Enjoy Paseo de los Artistas for an outdoor art show or galleries like Ambiarte, Guelaguetza Gallery, or 5ta Hacienda Store on 5th Avenue to find a piece of art that might just be the perfect addition to your Playa del Carmen real estate.
