I was there 10 years ago, and we rented a full-sized van for the time we were there. It was expensive, 100 dollars a day or something like that, but it sure was nice to be able to get in it and go...

I was there two years ago on a Royal Caribbean ship and I had been informed from the little Royal Caribbean people on two or three different occasions that this was a tender port and that you must be...
Falmouth Jamaica and Grand Cayman in a power chair. Doable?
We're kind of tossing around the idea of a Royal Caribbean cruise that would visit Falmouth Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel. I use a power chair full-time and am wondering about the accessibility...

I visited Roatan in April 2013 just for the day, and I wish I could've been three or four days. Beautiful place. I use a power chair full-time and we rented a wheelchair accessible van for the day...

You need to find out some more information, I'm thinking. Call up the cruise line and talk to their special needs department or whatever they call it, and find out exactly what they mean by a...

I think you had better check on the tender situation before you decide. If you are stopping at a tender port, there is no way they're going to let several people carry a power chair onto the tender...

I use a power chair full-time and at Cozumel, we rented a van for the entire day. We had it for 5 or 6 hours and the cost was $180, he took us wherever we wanted to go. It had a wheelchair lift at...

I use a power chair full-time and I was there last year and didn't have any problems. The shopping areas at the dock should be no problem at all. We went to a place called Buchannos Beach club for...

I was there last year on a Royal Caribbean ship and I had been told that it was a tender port also. I use a power wheelchair full time, so I was planning on just staying on board the ship at Belize...

We just showed up at Victor Botton's place and my mother and aunt rode the zip line, then we all went through the cages with the monkeys and played with them. It is kind of like a mini zoo, they also...

I use a power wheelchair full time and in Hawaii I went out on a catamaran with everyone else. It was a snorkel tour out to Molokini atoll, I think it was 8 miles offshore. The boat was a 60 foot...

As I began doing research for our cruise last spring, from what I have read Royal Caribbean seems to have the reputation of being the most disability friendly. At their website they have diagrams of...

This past spring my 70 year old mother and her sister did it. It's a 30 to 45 minute hike through the jungle and they saw nothing that scared them.

Like the other person, I have not been to the butterfly gardens. And the monkeys were rather fun. There is also a zip line there that some of our group enjoyed.

The easiest place to get vanilla is at the shops located right alongside the dock. It costs $5.00 there. If you go into the main town there is a giant store called Mega, it's like a Wal-Mart, the...

I agree. Do some checking around, spend some time doing your homework and you will be much more likely to get on a tour or whatever that you actually want to be on. I spent lots of time online...

My mother, her sister and their friend tried to do this tour. They booked it, showed up on time, then the tour company had them wait around for awhile, waiting to see if the current would calm down...

We had booked our cruise about nine months in advance and in that nine month period I had spoken to people at royal Caribbean several times. I always asked and they always told me that it was a...

I use a power wheelchair fulltime and I was in Belize City just last month. And they do have at least one tender boat that you can drive right onto, no problem. At least I did. I was on a Royal...

I was there a couple of weeks ago and we went to the ruins. I use a power wheelchair fulltime and our driver told me that I could probably get up to the palace, the first little section of the ruins...

The place where we did the zip line and played with monkeys is called Victor Bodden's Monkey Business. He runs a tour company also but I guess this is his main headquarters and he has a zip line and...

You're welcome. That's why I wrote it, so that someone could hopefully benefit from the information. I had to e-mail every tour company on roatan in order to find that one lift equipped van.
I just did Roatan, Belize and Cozumel in a power chair
I just returned from a cruise to Roatan, Belize City, and Cozumel on Royal Caribbeans Mariner Of The Seas. It was my first cruise ever and it was absolutely wonderful. Always things to do onboard and...
Is there anything good to eat on roatan?
I asked this question on another board and got no answers so I will try it here. I know that I want to try some conch, is there anything unique to this island or area that I should also try? I've...
