“What a wonderful way to set our backyard apart from our neighbors!
We are now the talk of the block! You have a customer for life.”

— Mary, Scottsdale, Arizona

The advantages of using a Palapa vs. an ordinary canvas umbrella are simple:

  • It is generally 10-15 degrees cooler than the surrounding air temperatures since its natural breathing capability lets the breeze pass through its hand-woven palm fronds.

  • They can withstand exceptionally high winds and are very low maintenance.

  • Untouchable beauty with relaxing benefits.
