Meet Our Executive Team

yolanda kaye
President Board of Directors

Yolanda Kaye, born in 1951 in rural El Salvador, is Costa Rica Expeditions Co-Founder with Michael Kaye and his surviving wife. Doña Yoly as we all affectionately call her, is truly the great woman who was, not only behind a great man, but continues to be behind our great organization. Her wise words, observations and willingness to listen to gardeners, cooks, account executives and executive team staff alike has provided many of us with a sound "put your feet on the ground and count your blessings" perspective.

One of Michael's and Yolanda's adventures was "Bike New York." They peddled a tandem bicycle 42 miles through the five boros of New York City. "I haven't seen a bicycle built for two in years," an old gentleman remarked. "Is it an antique? "

"The bicycle is new," Doña Yoly replied in her accented English. "We’re antiques."
