Brazil: Disabled Needs
The world's largest country in the tropics
There should be no reservations for disabled people considering a holiday in Brazil. Most, if not all, of the visitor attractions, hotels and transport on offer in Rio and Sao Paolo are wheelchair friendly with additional facilities for the hard of hearing and visually impaired.
Similarly, with a few exceptions in some of the older areas, most buildings are equipped with automatic entrances, wide aisle, ramps and disabled toilets. Every effort is made to ensure that holidays for disabled people in Brazil are safe and enjoyable. Wheelchair hire as well as sightseeing and shopping tours for disabled holidaymakers are numerous and easy to arrange. Within the main cities, Brazil is a safe, welcoming and helpful holiday destination for disabled people. In the more remote areas of the region, there is markedly less help readily available, but most tours and guides of the Amazon do have facilities on hand for disabled holidaymakers.
