  • Very lively at night! Several dances and couole small little performances to see while you walk the several blocks of the Quinta Avenida. Good restaurants, coffee shops and gelato stores to enjoy.

  • There’s a couple hidden gems on 5th but you have to get through a hundred bad places to find them. For example - for views go to Fusion bar off the beach. For breakfast, go to Cafe Orange...
