Medical Health Care Facilities
If you are disabled, there is no need to look for a different vacation destination. Aruba has plenty of facilities for the handicapped. There are some hotels (for example the Hyatt Regency Resort and the Mariott Resort & Stellaris) that have ground floor rooms and elevators so you can get into the room easily with a wheelchair. Other hotels that have rooms which disabled persons can use are for example the Aruba Palm Beach Resort and the Holiday Inn Beach Resort. Check our Hotel page for further details on these hotels and how to contact them with your specific questions. Also, check out Red Sail Sports if you are interested
in a diving course for disabled people. However, keep in mind that right now, some of the roads in downtown Oranjestad are not very suitable for people in a wheelchair. The government is working hard to fix the roads.
