Disabled Travelers in Bolivia

Bolivia, like many developing nations, lacks a real infrastructure for disabled tourists. Ramps into buildings are inconsistent in cities and nearly nonexistent in rural areas. Handicap accessible bathrooms may be found in high-end hotels and restaurants, but have not yet made their way into typical Bolivian establishments.

Sidewalks can also pose problems for disabled tourists as they are often uneven and deteriorating. Sidewalks in central business areas or tourist districts will be more smooth and even. Sidewalks in smaller towns are typically inconsistently managed. The many street vendors and markets which crowd city streets also make getting around more difficult. If you are planning to wander through the town on foot, stick to better-developed areas.

Public transportation is generally not equipped to service disabled travelers via ramps or handicapped seats, so you may want to make plans for transportation through your hotel or hostel. Sometimes these facilities can arrange for a more accommodating vehicle. Taxis might be another option, though expect some issues loading and unloading equipment.
