Discover the unmatched comfort and beauty of the Mayan Hammock. The Mayan
hammock has been written up in articles in Outside Magazine, Country Journal,
and American Medical Journal as being the most comfortable and ingeniously
designed hammock in the world. You'll love the way it totally envelops
your body, producing a feeling of weightlessness.
Our Mayan Hammocks are hand
woven by artisans using the finest quality materials. An important element to
the Mayan Hammock's comfort is that no wooden spreader bars are used, allowing
the hammock to conform perfectly to accommodate your body no matter what your
size! Once you've tried a Mayan Hammock, you'll never want any other kind of
hammock. Don't you deserve to be "Dangerously Comfortable"? Choosing the right
size Mayan hammock.
When choosing the right size
Mayan hammock, we recommend you think about it in terms of picking out a new
mattress. In fact, we've named our hammocks similar to the names of mattress
sizes to make it easier for you to choose the perfect Mayan hammock.
For one person, two people or
the whole family? Mayan Hammocks for One Person: If you're looking for a Mayan
hammock for one person, you have the benefit of choosing from virtually all of
our Mayan sizes.
The main difference is how much
room you want to have to move around and how comfortable the size will be for
you. If you like to sprawl out and have lots of room, you'll love the Queen and
King sizes. Plus it never hurts to have a little extra room in case someone
decides to join you! But if you are looking for a more compact, functional
hammock you may prefer the Small Single or Double size Mayan.
Mayan Hammocks for Two People:
If you are looking for a Mayan hammock made for two people, you will want to
choose from our Double, Queen or King size. All three will comfortably
accommodate two people. If you're unsure about which would be best for you, use
the mattress analogy to help you decide.
Think about how much "space" and
how comfortable you and your hammock partner will be in the different sizes.
Mayan Hammocks for Two or more people: Our recommendation is definitely the
Queen or King size. If you want the most rugged and durable hammock to
accommodate the whole family, go for the King Thick String.
