    Hi Marjan!

    There´s already some info here. Try searching the forum.

    Rio isn´t very accessible, but it´s worth visiting. There are plenty of activities available for wheelchair users, including:

    - Surfing & beach wheelchairs (only on weekends)
    - Hang-gliding
    - Sightseeing (Sugarloaf Mountain, Christ the Redeemer Statue, Botanic Garden etc.)

    The worst is our public transport system, but today there are many wheelchair accessible buses and some accessible subway stations. You can also hire a driver to take you where you want.

    Please keep asking questions!
