Wheel Chair Travel in Costa Rica & Panama

Wheel Chair Travel in Costa Rica & Panama

I'll be travelling this next november with my husband and another couple (4) to Costa Rica and Panama..

When travelling, he takes his manual wheel chair, cannot walk and weighs around 200lbs..

I've found different e-mail addresses for special sites and found one in CR; "vaya con silla de ruedas", but this one and many others are impossible to access..gowithwheelchairs.com, the page is blank..!

I've read in the forums the way to go is to have a rented daily chauffer, but with his condition it is not the way to go.

Can someone help me to find hotels, transfers and excursions, or reliable operators in these 2 cities; that offer services prepared for the disabled..??
