Travelers with Disabilities
Cubans go out of their way to assist travelers with disabilities, although few allowances have been made in infrastructure.
In the United States, the Society for Accessible Travel & Hospitality (347 5th Ave. #610, New York, NY 10016, tel. 212/447-7284, www.sath.org) and the American Foundation for the Blind (11 Penn Plaza #300, New York, NY 10001, tel. 212/502-7600 or 800/232-5463, www.afb.org) are good resources, as is Cuba’s Asociación Cubana de Limitados Físicos y Motores (Cuban Association for Physically & Motor Disabled People, ACLIFIM, Calle 6 #106, e/ 1ra y 3ra, Havana, tel. 07/202-5070, fax 07/204-8787, www.aclifim.sld.cu).
