Long Description:
5th Avenue (Spanish: Quinta Avenida) is a paved pedestrian street and the main tourist artery of Playa. Along Quinta Avenida you will find a variety of restaurants, bars, clubs and many shopping opportunities.

We discovered this small hidden Mayan temple when we explored behind the restaurant while we waited for our meal. From the 5th Avenue enter and go through the House of Massage the Butterflies and you will see the ruin.

Requirement: Please take a photo of yourself with the temple.
