DH & I will be returning to Aruba in December 2014 and are hoping that my brother and his wife will be able to join us.
My brother (a firefighter) was paralyzed from the waist down in an arson fire in 2010 and I am hoping this trip will be an opportunity for us to spoil them both a bit. I am trying to do some research to maximize the joy and minimize the aggravation as applies to accessibility.
Noting that ADA requirements aren't a given internationally, any observations or experiences you have had with regard to wheelchair accessible activities, restaurants, etc. would be greatly appreciated! He is very strong, capable and independent, loves to swim, and loathes to be pushed or carried...
We have reserved rooms at La Cabana through our timeshare and requested one of the ones with a roll-in shower, but haven't been able to confirm we have one booked. Admittedly some of the other resorts seem to have better suited accommodations, but La Cabana is what we can afford due to our timeshare... so we are hoping it will work!
