    Hi!

    I went to the Bahamas a number of years ago, and I remember it being similar (but not necessarily the latest infrastructure).  But I imagine it varies a lot depending on which country you visit in the Caribbean…

    I think one of the users on the site – @impactvacations – has accessible vacations there and may be able to comment with more recent information.

    Which country do you plan on visiting?  Maybe I can help you look up information – I love research 🙂

    Started looking around after your question and wonder if this site might help: https://www.accessiblecaribbeanvacations.com

    It is mostly cruise packages (which you may or may not be interested in), but there a number of detailed descriptions for different points of interest as well as ports across the Caribbean.  They discuss the good and bad accessibility points etc.

    On a cruise a few years ago one of our ports was San Juan,  I didn’t have a scooter at the time only a wheelchair, had to be the worst place to navigate being in a wheelchair, a policeman stopped the traffic just so we could cross an intersection, ……there is no asphalt.
