Since 2002, Silver Reef a jewelry shop specializing in Mexican silver, has been in business on the malecon here in Mahahual. They were one of the first businesses to open on the malecon in Mahahual, right after the cruise ship port was built. David Benitez, and his wife Suni specialize in .925 and .950 silver the best in Mexico. They also sell opals, and jewelry of Mayan design.

They moved here 13 years ago, and are originally form Taxco, the best silver mining district in Mexico. It is also the biggest producer of silver in the world. They moved to Mahahual because they like the quiet and tranquil life here, and there is no crime.

At Silver Reef they make their own jewelry, and it comes with a trademark, letter of authenticity and quality certificate. They only sell the finest quality .925 and .950 silver, the best you can get.

There is no sales person, so you deal direct with the owner, to get the best price. The shop has been here since the port opened, and they get a lot of repeat business from cruise ships. You can even design your own jewelry and they can make it for you. Their prices are about 50% less than the port prices. The silver’s purity they sell is protected by law.

They also have a Mayan gift shop where they sell gifts, pottery, and other Mayan related articles. So if you are visiting off of a cruise ship or are in town for vacation, stop by and take a look inside. Best deal on the malecon.

    David and Suni are wonderful friends – we have known them for over 30 years when we first met them in Cancun. They are the ones who inspired us to move to Mahahual 12 years ago. Their jewelry shop is a cut above anything else you will find in Mahahual – or at the port! Thanks for posting this Stewart – such lovely people and such a great advertisement for our little town of Mahahual!
