Costa Rica Wheelchair Accessible Hotels & Activities

Costa Rica has such an array of destinations and lodging options for every preference and type of traveler. The following list is an overview of wheelchair accessible hotels and tours throughout the country organized by region. Of course, there are varying degrees of disability so these are some rough ideas. We are happy to work together with travelers to tailor a trip for any degree of disability. We also strongly recommend private tours (if available) for those with disabilities/mobility restrictions.
