The Mayan Hammock (AKA Hamaca Maya) is characterized by colorful, densely woven fabrics. Despite being made of thin strings, they can hold just as much, or more, weight as a standard fabric or rope hammock.
The best Mayan hammocks are ultra comfortable and many locals traditionally sleep in them. The best come from the Yucatan region of Mexico and are handmade. They cost more than a standard hammock, but the difference is immediately noticeable. This amount of comfort is worth paying a little more.
