Being able to reach the beach in less than half an hour from the city is a luxury few can claim, but in Panama these types of dreams can come true.

In a world where preparation is of little value without the necessary opportunities, the Marriott Hotel has become not only a tourist center, but also a business center. We believe that being in the right place and having a good contact at the appropriate time can change the fate of your business.

Communications coordinator Margot López offered us a tour through the natural and cultural history of the Panama isthmus within an impressive structure designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, the Biomuseum of Panama.

Now it's up to you to dare to discover it.
