Luciano Noh Tzul Retires
by Lydia Linton Pontius (October 2012)
If you have visited Akumal, or more specifically Lol-Ha, in the last 16 years, you have more than likely met Luciano. He has been a fixture at Lol-Ha and has served many a drink along with many a smile, and I am sure many of you have a photo that was taken with him; I know I have several. It is with mixed emotions that we share the news about his retirement. For entirely selfish reasons we hate to see him go, but for Luciano and his family we are happy.
We, at Sac-Be.com, wish Luciano the very best in his
retirement and thank him for all he has done for everyone over the
A few facts about Luciano:
Luciano Antonio Noh Tzul began working at Lol-Ha on Dec. 7, 1996.
He has four children, all married, and currently seven grandchildren, the oldest of whom is 16.
He is from Chankom, Yucatán, between Valladolid and Merida, but now lives in Mérida.
Here's what some of his co-workers at Lol-Ha have to say about Luciano:
Laura Bush Wolfe, Owner: "Luciano has always been a very loyal and hard worker! He showed his
appreciation to us for his job in very special ways. Every year he
would dedicate a mass to David and me, to give thanks for the
opportunity to work with us! He was not just a dedicated hard worker,
he also leads an exemplary life! He is still in excellent physical
shape, working out and jogging as part of his regimen of fitness. Very
commendable! We truly will miss him and hope he comes to visit us when
Sam Jimenez, Bar Manager: "He was a fixture of the Snack Bar. As we said, 'A visit to Akumal was not complete without swimming with the turtles or posing for a photo with Luciano.' We wish him luck in this new chapter of his life in Mérida, close to his family."
Walter Canul, Food & Beverage Manager: "I enjoyed working with Luciano. He was attentive to the customers, and always happy and smiling."
Lazaro Sanchez, Head Waiter: "Muy agradable y amable" (Very pleasant and kind)
Rudy Romero, waiter: "One word to describe Luciano would be
'joyous.' Okay, more words ... 'young at heart.'"
