Nuevo Laredo - Post Report Question and Answers

Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

Yes, very much so. The infrastructure is a mess, side walks are a mess, it's all just a mess. - Dec 2022

The city tries, with ramps and handicapped parking spaces, but the infrastructure is still poor in this regard in many places. - Jun 2018

Oh yes! - Apr 2017

The consulate has two buildings, each with two floors. There are no elevators. Presumably the new consulate (opening late 2017) will have elevators. - Feb 2016

Yes, probably. The Consulate doesn't have an elevator and it is two floors. - Dec 2015

Not really. You drive everywhere. Although the Consulate is two stories and doesn't have an elevator. - Jun 2014

You need a car to get around everywhere here, regardless of disability status. - Feb 2013

Like most countries around the world, Mexico does not make a U.S.-level effort to accomodate disabilities. It would be a challenge to serve here with physical disabilities. - Nov 2011
