Relax your senses and enjoy a hammock on your own terrace. Have a drink, read a book or just rest your body for small nap during the day. The word “Hammock” comes from the Taino culture, Arawakan, which means “fish net”.
Though one can lie in a hammock lengthwise or across its width, most hammocks are best used with a diagonal position, as it provides the most room and support. Users with back and joint pains often report some relief from these problems when sleeping in a hammock in this manner.
Hammocks are very common on almost every house in Yucatán and all the Caribbean. They were not part of the classic Mayan era. Hammocks were said to have arrived to Yucatán from the Caribbean, only 2 centuries before Spain arrived to the American Continent.
