Need to buy only 1 travel book for Costa Rica

We're planning a trip to CR in August, and I need a good all-around guide book. In the past, I've used Lonely Planet, but now that we're traveling with kids and need a pool wherever we go, I am not sure that LP is the right vehicle. Thoughts? Thanks!

Moon and Fodors as above (check for most current edition). I also like Rum and Reggae which is a little more "fun".

I would recommend "Exploring Costa Rica" which is published by the Tico Times.

Some information at Fodors is ifi...in some cases the writers are like fanatics for some places...way over rate them!
