This comes up from time to time; but I just got another request for handicapped accessible condo. I could not accommodate them, and I suggested they contact SunBreeze and the Palm, also suggested Banyan Bay. I remember someone telling me that these places have accessible units and rooms. They needed a ground floor 2 bedroom wheel chair accessible unit.
It might be great to start a thread that would identify handicapped accessible accommodations on AC and what features each has. There are many disabled people who travel and it would be beneficial for those people who offer handicapped accessible accommodations to make it known in a central location. This is a source of business for you hoteliers if you have the facilities!
Marty, I know you are deluged with requests but if you ever have a chance, you might want to put up a link to a list of accommodations with home pages on // who have accessible would be appreciated by disabled travelers and the rest of us would know exactly where to send them if they contact us by email and don't use the message board.

You'll need to update this info, but I believe Journeys End had a lagoon rooms on out back that were not only wheelchair accessible, but also had handrails in the bathrooms and showers. They hosted a few groups of handicapped snorkelers. Make sure the bathroom door will be wide enough to accommodate a chair as well.

Excellent idea! Our villa is not wheelchair accessible (2 stories), but it would be nice to know which resorts are.

BTW, wouldn't getting to the island on Tropic or Maya be a problem?

when i was at JE there was a parapelegic (sp?) there. take note tho:

he was an extremely independent guy and refused to let his handicap slow him down. he was completing his scuba certification too. he travels alone.

HOWEVER: i watched them have to carry him & his chair several times, as JE is completely on sand. the room may have been properly equiped, i do not know. but the resort is all sand. he couldn't roll the chair to the office, restaraunt, bar, beach or dive shop. they had to lift it. sand & wheels don;t work together well. and you still have to water taxi them to the resort or town, and lift the person & chair out of the boat.

keep this under advisement.

ps - my father is handicapped.

Perhaps Lan could add a section (if he hasn't already) in his next edition of "San Pedro Cool" that covers this topic.
