See Kayaking is still a small but growing activity in Costa Rica. Sea Kayaks range from inflatbale toys to slim, elegant craft with foot rudders that can be paddled by one or two people and used on overnight kayaking / beach-camping trips. It's easy enough to learn at least the basics of getting around, so this could be a good activity for beginners as well as experienced people.
Kayakers at Bahía Drake tell of expeditions up jungle rivers where they were able to glide noiselessly up to wildlife (in one case, a tapir) without disturbing the animals. Combining ease of learning with an enhanced chance of spotting wildlife, a coastal kayaking trip is a great experience - no wonder sea kayaking is such a growing sport. Many places along the coast rent sea kayaks.
