Wow, I have a cousin that rented one in Miami and it took quite a few phone calls for that to happen. Your area of Mexico is not nearly as big as Miami, probably would be tough, mexico does not have many social services like the US. I would check cruisecritic.com forum for their forum on that city.

Also ask in the Riviera Maya forums here on TA tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowForum-g659488-i11442-R… and search those forums for previous discussions.

I rented a beach wheelchair from the company that I used to transport me from the Cancun airport to our hotel in Playa del Carmen in January 2010. I tried to find the name of the company for you, and although I'm not absolutely certain, I think is called Cancun Airport Taxi. When I looked on their website today I don't see any information about beach wheelchairs, but they have one pictured next to one of their vans with a ramp, which is how I discovered it in the first place.

I don't remember all the details, but I know I had them pick me up at the airport with the beach wheelchair in the van because it was cheaper than having them deliver it to the hotel later in my stay. Give them a call and let me know if they have what you need. If not, I will take more time to look through my old notes to find the right company.

Happy travels!

Although I found the receipt for the beach wheelchair rental that I mentioned earlier, it only had local telephone numbers and no web address information. I did, however, find another great resource for you in the Cancun forum from a year ago. Check out this website:


I'm not only sharing this information with you, but I've bookmarked it for my own use in the future!

Happy Travels!

Thanks again...would you mind posting the telephone number for the Cancun Airport Taxi Company? I have checked out the handicaptravelers site, they do show a amphibious vehicle that I will call them about.
