Travellers with Disabilities

Uruguay is increasingly providing for travelers with special needs. In Montevideo, for example, you’ll find newly constructed ramps and dedicated bathrooms in high-profile destinations such as Plaza Independencia and Teatro Solís, disabled access on some bus lines and a growing number of ATMs for the visually impaired. However, there’s still a long way to go. Spanish-language websites providing useful resources for those with disabilities include pronadis.mides.gub.uy, www.accesibilidad.gub.uy and discapacidad.gub.uy.
