This is a big question that you can only answer once you know what type of fun and interesting adventure you want to have out on the water. If you are looking to experience the sea, the beauty of the coast, and just want to relax, you might find that having a sailboat crewed by other people is the ideal choice.

Maybe you are looking for a place where you can bunk with your friends out on the water rather than staying in one of the towns or cities. Getting a large yacht would be a great option. Of course, you might also just want to have a fishing excursion. A fishing charter would then be the ideal boat rental in Costa Rica.
