Our Mayan Hammocks are "Dangerously Comfortable!" There are a few things you should consider first, before buying your Mayan hammock. The Mayan Hammock comes in different sizes, styles, and fabrics. Continue reading the article below to find out more about these three items.
Choosing the Right Size of Mayan Hammock
When choosing the right size Mayan hammock, we recommend you think about how many people will be using it, and how much room you need to be comfortable. We offer hammocks for just you, just you two, or you and the whole crew.
For one person, two people or the whole family?
Mayan Hammocks come in styles for one, two or more people.
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 hammock 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 hammocks. 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 Acapulco Mayan Hammocks.
Mayan Hammocks for Two People: If you are looking for a Mayan hammock made for two people, you will want to choose from our Acapulco, Cozy Cancun, or Mazatlan hammocks. 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 Cozy Cancun or Mazatlan hammock. If you want the most rugged and durable Mayan hammock to accommodate the whole family, go for the Mazatlan Thick String.
Choosing the right fabric for your Mayan Hammock.
Cotton Hammocks are the softest and most comfortable type of hammocks. 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 Hammock styles.
Nylon Hammocks are firmer feeling, with less flex than cotton hammocks. However, the nylon string is silky feeling and incredibly comfortable. The colors are vivid and unlikely to fade. Nylon Mayan hammocks offer 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 Hammocks 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 Mayan Hammocks. 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.
