My general opinion of the holiday

I was very impressed with Abidiania. There were a lot of disabled toilets and ramps because of the large number of people in wheelchairs.
It still managed to keep a small village feel!

Manual self-propelled wheelchair

My general opinion of the holiday

Thoroughly recommend it for some peace and quiet-it takes a while to get here from Cuiaba airport and the animals are mostly birds but you do not have to be a keen bird spotter to enjoy this place although obviously if you are it is really excellent.

My general opinion of the holiday

I really liked the areas that we went to in Copacabana and Ipanema.
Especially on a Sunday when the road is closed there is good accessibility for wheelchairs and I saw quite a lot of other users out and about.
Further away from the seaside am not sure how well the city fares!
