For One Person: If you're looking for a one person, you have the benefit of choosing from virtually all of our 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 Cozy Cancun and Mazatlan models. 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 design you may prefer the Small, Single, or Acapulco.
For Two People: If you are looking for one made for two people, you will want to choose from our Acapulco, Cozy Cancun, or Mazatlan styles. 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 partner will be in the different sizes.
For Two or more people: Our recommendation is definitely the Cozy Cancun or Mazatlan. If you want the most rugged and durable available to accommodate the whole family, go for the Mazatlan Thick String.
Choosing the right fabric.
Cotton are the softest and most comfortable type. They stretch and mold to your body. The colors are subtle and naturally beautiful. Although delicate, the cotton Mayans will give years of comfortable wear if properly cared for. If left out in the weather, colors will begin to fade and material will show signs of deterioration. Cotton is available with all Mayan styles.
Nylon are firmer feeling, with less flex than cotton. However, the nylon string is silky feeling and incredibly comfortable. The colors are vivid and unlikely to fade. Nylon offers increased durability, which may be better for travel or regular outdoor use. Nylon is available with our Queen and King sizes only.
Thick String Cotton are built for heavy use and is the most durable of the Mayans. It is made from thick gauge cotton 3-4 times the size of regular string. It has the same incredible comfort with a more rugged look and feel. Great for kids to play in or to accommodate your entire family! (Holds up to 750lbs) Thick string cotton is available with our Mazatlan Thick String style only.
