Accessible travel Argentina

Buenos Aires has been recognized as one of the most accessible cities in Latin America. A law was passed in 1994 that required the elimination of barriers for people with reduced mobility in public transportation. Not all subway stations, the "subte", are wheelchair accessible. However, due to the developed tourist industry in the city, as well as in other places of interest in the country, there is a wide range of accessible accommodation and transportation.
