So, if you would like to try and get some real relaxation using hammock read this guide to pleasure very carefully. These are the most popular styles of hammock out there, one of them must suit you for sure.

1.    Rope hammock

Rope hammockSimple and classy in the same time. One of the most affordable hammocks on the market. It’s made of two wooden planks with ropes going through them. The rope is usually made of cotton or hemp, ensuring comfortable swinging around. They can be put wherever you like. Knots of the ropes gently massage your back and since there are more holes than cloth your skin can breathe perfectly.

2.    Brazilian hammock

In a way, they are similar to the rope hammocks, but the holes are smaller and the density of the strings is bigger. There are no wooden planks so you’ll get that cocoon look once you lay on it. This way you’ll be stable without a chance of rolling around or falling down. Another benefit of having a Brazilian hammock is their durability. With minimum maintenance, you’ll be able to use one of these for years.

3.    Mayan hammock

4.    Nicaraguan hammock
