There doesn’t really seem to be any general information resource for Mexico (like “Accessible Mexico” or something)… any ideas or suggested websites?

You’re right, there doesn’t seem to be anything for all of Mexico…
If you are interested in visiting Cancun you can try: http://www.cancunaccesible.com/
The offer tours, transportation, wheelchair rentals and even personal care if needed!
Disabled Holidays also offers some package tours: https://www.disabledholidays.com/about/cancun-disabled-tours.html
Sorry, that seems to be it…March 8, 2018 at 2:19 pm #999
Too bad there isn’t much more general information. While tours are great, I prefer to explore alone…May 12, 2018 at 6:47 am #2567
Maybe @emirelopez can also answer?May 12, 2018 at 7:04 am #2568
Hello! México has lovely destinations, one more accessible than other, it depends on what you are looking for, for example if you travel to a colonial city like Guanajuato, you will be surprised how accessible has become lately, there are many options and the services are improving day after day, speaking about Mexican Caribbean, Cancun, Mayan Riviera, Cozumel, Tulum you will find that there are accessible options, but the beaches are not really accessible for 100%wheelchair users, for example in Playa del Carmen México, there is an accessible beach where you can borrow an amphibious wheelchair, this was s government efforts. Speaking about Cozumel island, there are options for local experiences, and themed parks that are 100% accessible options. Dare to travel to Mexico believe me you will be surprised the people is kind and the landscapes are stunning.May 14, 2018 at 10:55 am #2573
That is great to hear! Thank you so much for contributing.May 15, 2018 at 4:18 pm #2575April 11, 2019 at 12:36 am #8589
I just had a client get back from Cozumel who went scuba diving! He uses a manual wheelchair and said the dive shop he visited was amazingly helpful and that staff was all certified for accessible diving. A great option for those looking to get into the water. You do need to get PADI certified or get certified while there before the dive shop will take you out for free diving though.
