Buying a Mayan hammock and having questions is common and to be expected. After all, this is an important investment and one that you take seriously. You want to ensure you buy the hammock that will match your specific needs best and give you many years of relaxation and comfort. The good news is that at Mayan, they have a huge inventory of different types, sizes, and colors of hammocks. All you have to do is choose the hammock you want, Mayan professionals will retrieve it from their inventory, and the hammock will be shipped to you. It is just that easy.
A common question people ask relates to size. There is always the issue of knowing how to choose the right size. The great thing is that the hammocks are all clearly marked showing the maximum weight and size recommended. Generally, the difference between the various sizes relates to the width of the hammock. The standard recommendation is to buy the largest hammock you can afford. This will ensure you get maximum comfort. When it comes to hanging your hammock, you will find that the Jungle hammock can be hung almost anywhere. If you have two points that are 9 to 18 feet apart, you can hang it. You can use hammock stands, patio poles, trees, virtually anything. The hammocks will be from 6 to 10 feel off the ground, giving you an incredible experience.
Another subject that everyone wants to know about is the difference between nylon, Ciguena, and cotton hammocks. First, Ciguena is a cotton hammock although very fine and extra soft. Both the cotton and nylon hammocks are strong and each has its own benefits. The great thing about cotton is that it tends to conform to the body better and is softer. Nylon hammocks are somewhat firmer that cotton hammocks but will also withstand more severe conditions such as beach weather. As mentioned Ciguena is cotton but the fibers are long and spun from the finest cotton crops. The result is an extra strong hammock that is resilient.
When it comes to where hammocks can be hung, they can be hung both outdoors and indoors. Outdoors, you can use two points of anchor and indoors, you can purchase a hammock stand and actually use your hammock as a bed. Some of the stands are quite beautiful such as the arc. If you do hang your hammock outdoors, make sure you bring it inside when not being used. Although the nylon hammocks can uphold in harsh weather, they too will last longer if taken in during rain, snow, and even excessive heat. The cotton styles should definitely be taken inside when the weather turns bad.
People often ask if hammocks are stable and the answer is yes. They are extremely stable and with Mayan hammocks, they have one less axis of rotation than that of a rope hammock and the center of gravity is lower. At Mayan, regardless of the type of hammock you are interested in, you will be buying only the best quality.
