- Visitors from cold northern climes relish their time swinging lazily in the hammocks that hang from Yucatán's palm trees. If you want to reproduce that blissful calm in your own backyard, purchase one of the colorful, high-quality hammocks sold at Hamacas Mérida. Woven in cotton, nylon, hemp, or sisal (the ropy fiber of the henequén plant), all hammocks sold here are handcrafted in the small Mayan village of Chumayel, located about an hour's drive southeast of the city. Hammocks are priced based on size, weight, and construction, with the #4 small hammock retailing for MX$280/US$28. A medium #5 hammock costs MX$300/US$30 and the larger #6 selling for MX$350/US$35. Hamacas Mérida sells all that you need to set up and protect your hammock: wall hooks in many styles, springs for bounciness, mosquito nets, carrying bags, and rain protectors. The store will ship your purchases to any country via FedEx or Estafeta.
