Happily, there are good facilities for the disabled at all the terminals of the international airports in the Canaries. Playa de las Américas and Puerto de la Cruz have several wheelchair friendly hotels and more are being built. There actually exists a purpose built centre in Los Cristianos called 'Mar y Sol Resort'. But that is the end of the good news!

Throughout the rest of the islands, facilities are lacking or do not exist at all. There are hardly any adapted toilets and you won't find disabled friendly hire cars (maybe an automatic) or public transport.

However, there is a company specialising in the hire of equipment to help get the disabled mobile.

The British based Royal association for Disability and rehabilitation (RADAR), publish a guide called 'Holidays & Travel Abroad: A Guide for Disabled People'. It includes info on Spain and the Canary Islands with plenty of contact details. (Tel: 0171 250 3222).

Also, the British 'Holiday Care Service' can be requested to send you a fact sheet for the Canaries with very useful information. (Tel: 01293 774 535).
