The customs and traditions of Yucatan have always caught the eye of the rest of Mexico. An authentic Yucatecan home reflects part of these unique customs and traditions, which are intimately linked to the local lifestyle. That’s why today we’d like to tell you about some basic elements you’ll find in a home in Yucatán.
1. Three shower faucets
In Yucatecan homes, three shower faucets in every bathroom are the norm. One of them is for hot water, one for cold water, and the third one, to control the overall water flow. That way, once you find the right temperature for your shower, you don’t have to worry about finding it again, since you can open and close the third faucet, and the temperature remains the same.
2. Hammock fixtures
Most Yucatecos, as is well-known, sleep-in hammocks, or at least have hammocks at home so they can take naps. Because of this, a Yucatecan home staple is, without a doubt, having at least one pair of hammock fixtures or hamaqueros, special objects that serve as a support that can bear the full weight of a hammock supported by two hooks, one on each side, which in turn are supported by a base that is attached to the wall. Usually, during the construction of a home in Yucatán, the spots on the walls where hamaqueros will be placed are planned in advance, so hammocks can be properly installed.
3. High ceilings
Another feature in Yucatecan homes are high ceilings. High ceilings allow for a better ventilation of the rooms, since it allows for hot air to accumulate at the top, while fresh air circulates at ground level. This is especially useful and important in Yucatan, due to the high temperatures that exist throughout the year.
