Welcome back to Disabled Travelers!

As we approach the end of our CNBC-inspired access guide series on the best places to retire, we find ourselves on the coast of Mexico.

Mexico has gotten some bad press lately due to crime, mainly on the border. You should always keep travel advisories in mind!

But also remember that there are still many areas far removed from those troubles – such as Puerto Vallarta, still one of the most popular resort zones in Mexico and home to a thriving expat community. [more]

Hello and welcome one and all to the Disabled Travelers blog.

Our friends out there on the internet know the drill: once a month, we celebrate another set of blog adventures by providing you, the home viewer, with the latest news in accessible travel.

It’s a tradition we’ve had for a while and there’s always something new to report, whether it’s brand new disabled hotels or tips to help you and your travel companions on the next journey.

This month brings us from the desert to the tundra, so let’s get started! [more]

In today’s Disabled Travelers adventure, we’ll be hitting Languedoc-Roussillon, France, and Le Marche, Italy!

If these locales are new to you, fear not: they were pointed out to us by CNBC’s “Best Places to Retire Outside the U.S.” series, a trail that we’ve been following on the Disabled Travelers blog for the last few weeks.

As DT fans may already know, we’ve passed through both Italy and France on previous trips.

This time, though, we’re zooming in on two of the countries’ “best kept secrets.”

Grab your travel companions and let’s go! [more]

Howdy, and welcome to Disabled Travelers!

With some companies out there claiming that the first sustained “space tourism” will take place in 2012, I got to thinking: will there be accessible travel in space?

Naturally, the Americans With Disabilities Act could easily be applied or extended to tourism in the “final frontier.”

But the are some activities and a few odd things that ADA does not apply to, including the internet itself.

So, with the clock ticking on space travel for tourists, will disabled travelers and their travel companions be included? [more]
