Likewise, the Spain is Accessible official site indicates the presence of elevators with adequate dimensions for wheelchair users, accessible restrooms on different floors, and a reception desk with two heights.
Teide National Park
Explore the Teide National Park, located in the heart of the island. This natural area has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is home to the highest peak in Spain – it has a prominence of 3,715 meters. Remember to go in comfortable clothes, water, and some energy food. Also, keep in mind that it is forbidden to take volcanic stones from the site.
You can easily reach the base of the volcano by car and enjoy magnificent views of its surroundings. The park has several accessible trails for wheelchair users, such as the Roques de García stretch or the Botanical Garden area.
According to the Tenerife Turismo website, across the path next to the Roques de García you can see wonderful views of Roque Cinchado and Mount Teide. Don’t leave without taking some pictures of these iconic rock formations.
Puerto de la Cruz
Visit Puerto de la Cruz, one of the most beautiful coastal towns. Among its main tourist attractions is the Loro Parque, which plays an important role in the conservation and protection of wildlife. This zoo is mostly accessible to people with reduced mobility and lends wheelchairs free of charge.
Next, you can go to Lago Martiánez. The complex has three distinguished areas: the San Telmo pools (the oldest), the three central pools (known as Los Alisios), and the Lake (which occupies an area of more than 30,000 m2). Specifically, the last-mentioned area is accessible for swimming, as it has a ramp and an amphibious chair. Take your time to relax in this place.
