Handicap Accessible

Costa Rica is not very handicap friendly like say the US. The public transportation doesn’t have lifts or anyway for someone to get a wheelchair on. They barely slow down to pick people up so if someone is working with a mild handicap (say a limp) it would be challenging for them to get aboard before the bus takes off at record speed.

Handicap parking is not used for the handicapped either. You see the places blocked off but no way to park there unless you get out of the car and go look for a guard to remove the thing blocking the entrance. Even at the hospital. They have several spots for handicap parking but a rope across it so that you can’t possibly park there.

Most houses are two story and steps are everywhere, ramps are not. Costa Rica is not very handicap friendly in this respect.
