BLIND and visually impaired people who visit Motril will be able to learn all about the town in a newly created guide written in braille.
The ‘Guide for accessible tourism’ is already available at the Tourist Office of the Pueblos de America Park.
“So that no condition can be an obstacle to enjoying tourism, the council, together with Municipal Board of People with Disabilities, have created the Plan for Accessible Tourism, which will contribute to the integration of all communities and allow everyone to enjoy Motril,” said deputy mayor, Alicia Crespo.
This guide contains information on the main attractions of Motril such as the beaches, adapted equipment for people with disabilities, the Suarez Wetlands and the routes through the Old Town.
“It is a great opportunity to open up this market and improve social integration, as tourists with disabilities do not chose a destination due to its attractions or costs, but by researching which ones are more accessible and offer appropriate services to them,” said head of the association of blind people, ONCE, in Motril, Baldomero Chacon.
