Hammocks are a very special thing here in the Yucatan. The craftsmanship of them is beautiful, detailed, and durable. I’m not talking about the cheap touristy ones sold in the plaza grande to extranjeros sporting sunburns and fanny packs.
I am referring to the beautiful densely woven hammocks in a rainbow of beautiful colors and patterns.
A majority of yucatecos sleep year round in hammocks. I have been sleeping primarily in a hammock for the past 7 years. Wait, that’s not what this is about, back on track girl!
I was at Siglo XXI this morning. Siglo XXI is a conference center, and houses our Tourist Bureau offices, and well as one of the state office for automobile stuff, tags, licenses, multas (tickets)..
This is their newest decoration – I really love this!
