The chinchorro is the most comfortable piece of furniture in the Llanos. These broad hammocks are woven as a close-mesh net. Cool on a sultry day and large enough to cocoon yourself in on a chilly night, it is the most perfect hammock you could imagine. Cinchorros Saidez has a fine selection, with a simple single costing $53 and a more elaborately worked one for $125. Doubles (for two people) begin at $140. If you would like to snuggle down with the entire family, family-sized chinchorros are also available. Special orders take one week.
