Most disabilities shouldn't stop anyone from traveling. There are more options and resources out there than ever before. Still, Ecuador is severely behind the times in making structural changes to address the needs of its own citizens with disabilities -- not to mention visitors with disabilities. In most cities, sidewalks are narrow, crowded, and uneven. Few hotels offer wheelchair-accessible accommodations, and there are no public buses equipped to handle those in wheelchairs. The Quito trolley system can handle wheelchair passengers, although its near constant overcrowding makes this better in theory than in practice. A few of the higher-end large hotels in Quito and Guayaquil have specific wheelchair-accessible rooms and bathrooms.
