While in Belize, individuals with disabilities may find accessibility and accommodation very different from what one would find in the United States. While some government buildings, schools, businesses and restaurants are accessible for individuals with disabilities, many places remain inaccessible. Accessibility may be especially difficult in the rural and non-tourist areas. Paved roads and sidewalks are rare outside tourist areas, and public buses and taxis are not accessible. Please check with hotels, restaurants, and tour operators in advance for information about accessibility.
