Yolanda (ユバ Yuba) is a character in Harvest Moon: Animal Parade.

Yolanda works as a cook at the Ocarina Inn, her family's business. She is Jake's mother. She's a fantastic cook, and spends most of her time in the kitchen. She has tried to teach her granddaughter Maya to cook[1], but it resulted in many kitchen disasters.

When the Inn is open, Yolanda will always be found in the kitchen area of the Inn. Rarely will she be seen in the bedrooms at the back of the Inn where her and her family live. On days when Ocarina Inn is closed, Yolanda will be found outside of the Inn, on the streets of Harmonica Town.

Although a minor character, there's a long event that can be triggered at 5 hearts, which is one of the most involved events in the game. The player may also choose to get her wish to help ring the Purple Bell.

Yolanda's Treasure Map

To see this event, you must befriend Yolanda up to 5 hearts. Once you've befriended her, speak to her when she's in the Ocarina Inn to start this side quest of sorts.[3]

Yolanda will give you a map that she found while walking on the beach, as she doesn't need it anymore. Unfortunately, it's damp, and is unreadable in it's current state. Finn will suggest that you dry the map so that you can read it's contents. Use your matches to light a fire and hold the map over the fire to dry it out. Once it's legible, you will discover that it's actually a treasure map! There's a warning not to show the map to anybody, and is signed by the great Captain Bluecoat the pirate. The map tells you to to go the lighthouse first.

  • At the lighthouse, examine the area by pressing A. You'll want to look near the grass by the bridge. Once you find the right area, you'll be rewarded with Perfect Coffee Beans, a Crystal, and there will also be another clue.
  • The second clue is to look for "a kettle, which may test your mettle." There is a kettle on the General Store's sign in the Garmon Mine District. Once you're at the store, go around to the backside of it and examine the barrels next to the store. You'll be rewarded with a bag of summer seeds, an Amethyst, and another clue.
  • The third map tells the player, "If ye finds the pumpkin sign, ye shall be the next in line!" There are two pumpkin signs, actually - and both are located at Marimba Farm. Travel there, and stand underneath the smaller sign that's hanging to the left of the front entrance. Press A and examine the area to find a Black Pearl and some Rock Salt.
  • The next clue reads, "Ye be pious? The Church will see! But a nearby streetlight holds the key!" This is a fairly easy clue, and you'll need to travel to the Celesta Church Plaza. The only difficult part of solving this clue is that the streetlamps will not come on until after 17:00. When they've turned on, go around the church grounds and press A near the streetlamps to examine them. When you've found the correct lamp, you'll be rewarded with a Topaz, Shining Perfume, and the last clue!
  • The last map will read: "I gives ye the last clue, so listen ye well! Head ye down to Toucan land at 8 in the morn'. Tha' beach is where you'll be wanting to stand!" You will obviously need to travel to Toucan Island for this, at 8:00. Using Pascal's boat, travel to Toucan Island, and go down to the water's edge on the beach. Start to press A around the shoreline at 8AM, and you'll be rewarded with a piece of Glass.

Both your character and Finn are disappointed that the mighty pirate treasures was a piece of glass! Pascal asks what's wrong, but reveals that he is actually Captain Bluecoat! He's not really a pirate though (although he's always wanted to be), and made up the clues for fun.

He tells you to dig deeper, and once you do, you're rewarded with a Pirate's Bandana and Pirate Eyepatch.[4] These are unique accessories for your character to wear.
