ACCESSIBLE ATTRACTIONS

Museums in San José

Unlike other parts of the country, you will find very interesting museums in San José. Below we provide information about the accessibility of some of them:

Irazú Volcano National Park

If you’re looking for an outdoor adventure in Costa Rica, a visit to Irazú Volcano National Park is a must. The park is home to one of the country’s most impressive natural wonders, the Irazú Volcano, which stands at a towering 3,432 meters above sea level.

Fortunately, visitors of all abilities can enjoy the breathtaking views of the volcano thanks to the park’s accessible trail. This trail leads to the viewpoint of the main crater, where visitors can take in stunning views of the volcanic landscape. Additionally, the park has made sure to provide accessibility features to visitors with reduced mobility. The Diego de la Haya Crater is also accessible, allowing visitors to experience another impressive crater up close. Ramps are available to lead visitors to the main boulevard, cafeteria, and restrooms.

Manuel Antonio National Park

Relax on the beaches of the Manuel Antonio National Park, almost a three-hour drive from San Jose. The beautiful preserve has wheelchair-accessible trails. It is also possible to request a permit to enter by taxi.

Manuel Antonio is home to lush forests inhabited by sloths, squirrel monkeys, iguanas, crabs, and other wildlife. It is one of the most beautiful and diverse natural areas in the world. In addition, there are some of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica.

To better plan the entire visit, we recommend that you first contact the park itself and tell them what your needs are. You can reserve an amphibious chair by calling the number listed on the SINAC website: 2777-5185.

ACCESSIBLE TRANSPORTATION

Public transportation in Costa Rica has accessible units for wheelchair users. In addition, it is an affordable option to get around. However, it usually makes many stops and the trips can be very long since it is more oriented towards serving locals than tourists.

Interbus Costa Rica (a collective shuttle service) can be an alternative to visiting the places of interest you want. As far as we know, their vehicles are not accessible, but they have enough capacity. Contact them beforehand to let them know about your needs and find out all the details about transportation.

  • Fly Sansa. Fly to different destinations in the country. People with reduced mobility must travel with a companion.
  • Taxis con rampa. Taxis with wheelchair ramps in Costa Rica.
