Although wheelchair-accessible-taxis have been available in Cozumel for quite some time, they were hard to reserve in advance for local tours. All that has changed, as it’s now possible to book a wheelchair-accessible taxi for a shore excursion or a day tour through This is Cozumel. The accessible taxis are ramped and have the rear seats removed, so there’s plenty of room for a wheelchair or a scooter, or even two manual wheelchairs. Tours can be customized to individual tastes, and they can include stops at the Hacienda Antiqua Tequila Center, the Discover Mexico Exhibition or an accessible beach bar and restaurant. And if you’d like to stop at the beach, they can even provide a beach wheelchair. Along the way knowledgeable English-speaking guides give visitors the low down about the local sights, history and culture. The taxis can pick visitors up at local hotels, cruise ship piers, or any downtown meeting place.
