Address & Directions
Calle 47 #453-C, x50 y52, Centro
Explanation: Casa Guadalupe is located at 47th Street (calle 47) at #453-C "por 50 y 52" (between calles 50 and 52) - this is part of the address! - in the "Céntro Histórico" district - also part of the address!
Traveling east on calle 47, after crossing calle 52, Casa G is almost at the end of the block, on the left. The overhang over the front door makes it easy to spot. Here is a snapshot of the front of the house (One fun thing about Merida: You can never tell from the street what lies behind!)

Casa G is between two neighborhoods defined by two parks:
From Santa Ana (calle 47 x 60) it is 5 blocks east on 47, which runs west-to-east.
Mejorada (calle 50 x 57) is 5 blocks to the south on 50, which runs north-to-south.
The city has named all corners in Centro with a unique name displayed on a ceramic plaque.
The corner of calle 47 & 50 is "La Letra."
Streets in Merida are numbered as follows:
Odd numbered streets run east-west or west-east (usually alternating) or both.
The number increases going north.
Even numbered streets run north-south or south-north (usually alternating) or both.
The number increases going west.
Streets divisible by 4 (52, 56, 60, etc.) run north;
the other even numbered streets (50, 54, 58, etc.) run south.
