Lying in a Yucatecan hammock is an art, and if it is done correctly, probably more comfortable than lying in bed. We were taught to stand sideways, facing away from the hammock with it hanging behind us. Then take the side of the hammock farthest from us, and hang it over our shoulders. Take the side closest, pull it out beneath us and sit down. Now pivot about 45 degrees to one side or the other and lie down, lying at a diagonal in the hammock.
To meet the growing demand, entire villages across the state of Yucatan makehammocks still in the traditional manner, that is, hand woven by men, womenand children. It’s an important source of income for many families.
