Entering the town driving south on #245 (coming from the north, Chacarita and San Jose)
There are many signs at the entrance to town. There is also a stop sign at this corner, so please Stop! For a prettier and more informative drive, I highly recommend cross over the main road and follow Beach Road. You will see the entire waterfront of the town. Go past the restaurants to the pavement and follow the paved road alongside the airstrip. Continue past the main corner for 150 meters. We are on the left in front of the laundromat behind a large green hedge.

(caddy-corner. This expression, meaning “diagonally opposite,” was formed from a misspelling in English of the French word quatre (“four”) prefixed to “corner.” Although the word has nothing to do with cats or kittens, in various dialects all three spellings are acceptable: “catty,” “cater” or “kitty.”May 31, 2016).
