About HamakVibes

Hamak Vibes

This is our family vibe where we write about and share our point of view on topics that we are passionate about, our experiences/reviews and topics of interest that come up anywhere be it around the dinner table, in the car or randomly from thin air. Certainly conversation starters that end up very interesting at times. 


What does it mean to really be healthy? Well, we are learning it’s finding the balance between diet, exercise, and sleep. That’s the basics of it and none of us have it right, but the good thing is most of us realize and are aware to this, so we work at it, every day in our own way. On our health page, Hamak Vibes will document our family journey on all things health related for the mind, body, and spirit. In this section, you can also follow Ayerim’s journey, recently diagnosed with severe sleep apnea she talks about her experiences in hopes of bringing awareness to this invisible disease.


Life is too short to not live it fully and to spend it all in one place is a little boring in our opinion. With a small island heart, we hope to travel the world collecting moments and memories as a family and share them with you, our family and friends.  We are always ready to discover new things and have a great experience.
