Cumaru deck, sometimes called Brazilian Teak decking is very hard, almost 3x harder than oak. It is hard even compared to other Hardwoods. Ipe is the only Brazilian Hard wood that is harder than a Cumaru cumaru flooring bahamasdeck. Cumaru is great for island use.  It resists weather, insects, mold and most anything that mother nature can throw at it. Cumaru is naturally resistant to bugs as its sap is harvested for Coumadin, the blood thinner and rat poison.  So in addition to being hard it is lethal to the few bugs that try to eat it.
