The bus station is on Colon Ave. so you should walk out the bus station and walk down Colon Ave to east till the Cuauhtemoc Ave. (it's 2 blocks) and take a bus (Ruta 1 San Nicolas Tec a green bus) Rembember you are going to the north, telling the driver to drop you off in the Anahuac Popeye restaurant bus stop because you need to go to Colonia Anahuac, San Nicolas, Nuevo Leon. Then, after getting off the bus walk two blocks north until the 'Benavides' drugstore and this is our street, Ramon Lopez Velarde. Turn right and we are 2 ½ blocks further ahead it's the 321.
As a recommendation you should get U.S. Dlls or Mexican pesos so you will be able to buy a telephone card and use the phone cabs, next you can call us wherever you are in Monterrey and if We are available can pick you up.
