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.
