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."
