Costa Rica: Disabled Needs

Where the sun always shines

Disabled facilities in Costa Rica were not always recognized by the government. In fact, a law respecting the rights of disabled people was not even passed until 1996 but there are campaigners who are working to drum home the importance of niche marketing. Access issues do exist but there are hotels within Costa that cater specifically for the disabled and provide access. So the advice for disabled holidays in Costa Rica is to check before you travel, though in a country with such unique and durable terrain, travellers need to be realistic.
