Matt Landau is an American owner of Los Cuatro Tulipanes, 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. Under his wing is also The Canal House, the oldest-existing boutique hotel in the historic district of Panama City.

He is a member of the Association for Place Branding and Public Diplomacy, 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.”
