I have never seen such things available. Even if you had your own, it might be impossible to navigate curbs, narrow, single-file sidewalks with occasional light poles, high curbs in some areas have two steps to the street. Mexico is not handicap friendly.

Are you talking about the sit down flavor with the basket in the front ? Those are available for use at Costco, Sorianos/Mega, and even I think Walmart.

Are you asking because you want to buy one ? Looks like they are available on MercadoLibre.

My friend can’’t keep up with our group on walking tour exhibits due to neuro/ muscular disease, we find a seat for him & he sits while we make our rounds which is no fun for him or us. He has a scooter but not sure abt legality of shopping or day trips ( museum’s, art exhibits, etc) , hasn’t used it bc was told it can be ticketed &/or confiscated . Anybody got a clue?

Here is an interesting link :

Also - and you might have to phrase your question carefully (toward consumerism) - PROFECO has a ton of very competent lawyers. Perhaps if you purchased a scooter and were later denied the right to use it sort of thing... Just my 2 cents.

I think I saw in the Facebook page for Find It Here Mazatlan, that mobility scooters are allowed in Mazatlan. I don’t see why they wouldn't in other parts of Mexico. Who told your friend that he couldn't use it?

Powercar.com.mx sells scooters in Mexico City, so I would say they are legal.

Yes, mobility scooters are available, but it would be wise to bring your own, and he is said to already have one. The problem is the difficulty of using one; which is why they are not readily available locally & must be ordered. Using one on cobblestones or many public streets is a very rare sight; so rare that I have never seen one in use outside of a major big box store. I do not suggest trying to tour with one. In Mexico, restaurant waiters, and others, will generally come out and actually lift a handicapped person, chair and all, into the establishment. They would not be able to handle a heavy scooter, and there would be no safe place to 'park' it.
