Matt Landau is an American owner of Los Cuatro Tulipanes Rentals, nominated “Mexico & Central America’s Leading New Hotel in 2012″ by the World Travel Awards and ranked a “Top 10 Traveler’s Choice B&B in Central America” by millions of travelers on Trip Advisor in 2012 and 2013. Also under his wing is The Canal House, the oldest-existing boutique hotel in the historic district of Panama City. Previously, Matt founded The Panama Report, one of the first investment journals in Panama, which was acquired by The Country Report LLC, a nation branding agency, in 2009.
He is a member of the Association for Place Branding and Public Diplomacy as well as the Founder of VRLeap and Vacation Rental Marketing Blog, two cutting edge resources in the emerging vacation rental industry. Matt has a 22 golf handicap, and, as much as he aspires to do so, has never successfully completed a Spanish-language crossword puzzle. Less impressive, he once won a bet by getting quoted in BusinessWeek using the word “balls.”
