Tenerife Accessible Tourism: A Comprehensive Guide

Understanding Accessible Tourism

Accessible tourism, as defined by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), is the collaboration of individuals and stakeholders that enables people with special needs (in all areas, mobility, vision, hearing, cognitive, visceral, etc.) to live independently, with equality and dignity, thanks to a wide range of tourism services, products and environments designed in a universal way.

Rut Gomez: A Pioneer in Inclusion

Rut Gomez, the founder of Tazirga, holds a deep-rooted passion for accessible tourism. Her journey began in the world of scuba diving, where she pursued training with Disabled Divers International through Rivemar (Murcia), earning her certification as an adapted diving instructor. Over the years, Rut’s expertise expanded, leading her to provide training to:

    • Diving professionals
    • Therapists from various fields (physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychotherapy, etc.)
    • Family members and assistants to accompany leisure activities both in and out of the water
    • Hospitality professionals to adapt their facilities


Rut’s dedication to adapted tourism has been recognized through her accreditation as an Instructor Trainer by Disabled Divers International in 2013, becoming their representative for Panama and Central America. In 2023, she further enhanced her expertise by obtaining the ACCESSCULT certification: “Accessible cultural heritage for all.”
