During the first quarter of 2024, 12 valuable items were found and returned

Mérida, Yucatán, on April 19, 2024, employees of Cultur working at the Chichén and Dzibilchaltún visitor centers, as well as at the Siglo XXI Convention Center, found 12 lost items and, in an act of honesty, returned them to their rightful owners.

The tourists who were delighted by the workers' honesty, mainly janitors, administrators, and security personnel, are from Italy, the USA, Peru, as well as Mexico City and Mérida. To give an idea of the cost represented by this action, out of the 12 found and returned objects, eight were cell phones (six of which were iPhones), a wallet with money, car keys, a bag with various valuable belongings, and a mobile radio.

The honest employees involved were: Martha María Tec Cemé, Nancy Floricely Cab Cobá, Blanca Kinil, Santiago Tun Yam, Sebastián Cahum Dzib, and Alejo Chan Ay, all of them workers in the janitorial area at the Chichén Itzá visitor center. Also involved were María Belen del Rosario Ku Canul, an administrative assistant at Dzibilchaltún, and Viviana Cetina Kituk from the marketing department at Cultur's central offices.

The returns occurred as follows: four in January, one in February, and seven more in March.

During the delivery of these resources, which took place at the Dzibilchaltún Hall of the Siglo XXI Convention Center, Mauricio Díaz took the opportunity to thank all the personnel under his charge for the effort made throughout this six-year term.

-Everything that was achieved, such as the Guinness Record (The Largest Lesson on Disability Awareness), having a cinema with inclusive facilities, the highest influx in tourism, the great influx we have here at Siglo XXI... We owe it all to your great effort -he emphasized.

He said that this administration, which will soon end, was very demanding because that's what the governor marked but thanks to this is that the results in all areas are very flattering and it makes us feel very proud to have been part of this chapter in the history of our State.

After the delivery of all economic support, Díaz Montalvo and all his area directors posed for a memorable photo with the workers."
