TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERTS Costa Rica

Widely recognized as the man who pioneered eco-tourism in Costa Rica, Michael Kaye, the founder of Costa Rica Expeditions, was the first tour operator to bring white water rafting to the country, in the 1970s, and became an early and influential advocate of sustainable travel practices throughout the region. After living in Costa Rica for the past forty years, Michael knows all the best river runs, hiking trails, and hidden beaches, not to mention the finest wildlife guides in the business. Natalie, the company’s chief guest-satisfaction officer, works closely with guests and guides to ensure that weather delays and other logistical issues don’t wreak havoc on itineraries. Michael was also included in Perrin’s People, Wendy’s award-winning list of top travel specialists, which was published annually in Condé Nast Traveler magazine from 2000 to 2013. He has a nifty online wish list that we recommend you fill out—it narrows in on your interests and reasons for choosing Costa Rica. But don’t forget to also fill out Wendy’s trip-request form, so that Wendy can monitor your trip and make sure it’s extraordinary.
