There are lots of countries like Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Brazil and Nicaragua, where hammocks have always been used as an essential object. In these countries, hammocks have been used for more than 900 years which is truly fascinating. However, it is thought that hammocks were actually introduced by Mayan Indians in Central America about 1000 years ago.
Mayan hammocks are extremely comfortable and provide good ventilation, but don't leave any prints on your skin. They are also very light-weight, so string hammocks can be used for camping or taken to the beach. There is one disadvantage though - it is easy to damage a string hammock. Any sharp object can easily cut the string, so they are not as durable as rope or fabric hammocks.
Hammocks are usually made of either rope, or cloth. The rope hammocks are made of nylon or cotton ropes knitted together in the form of a large net. These are inexpensive and usually last for years if used properly. Rope hammocks also let air circulate around your back, and prevent excessive sweating. The only drawback is the fact that the ropes may dig into your skin. However, this can be avoided simply by spreading a thin sheet of cloth on the hammock. Cloth hammocks are made of thick sheets of absorbent cotton. These are even more comfortable than rope hammocks. There are no ropes that dig into your skin, and the fabric will wrap around your body, providing superior comfort. These do not allow circulation of much air around your back due to the thickness of the material, but the cotton fabric will absorb most of the perspiration, keeping you cool on a hot summer day.
Hammocks can be of different types, including portable hammock, hammock chair, and hammock swing. Portable hammocks are made of a lightweight material that is easy to carry around. Still, the material is sturdy enough to hold up the weight of one person properly. Portable hammocks often ship with hammock posts, so you will not need to hunt for trees that are strong enough and at the right distance from one another when you are looking for a relaxing nap on the beach.
