Nice cafe /dog sanctuary. Check veggie wrap for queso if vegan! Nicer alternative to the packed cafe at Catarata Río Fortuna and just down the road from there. Worth the stop.

The food was the best we had on the entire trip-in fact it was the only place we ate at twice! And we are dog fanatics so touring the rescue and eating outside with the pups was such a fantastic experience!! Great people and great food, loved it!!

We visited Cr Dog Rescue which is also at the same location as Gecko’s Waterfall Grill.

Our purpose in this visit was to take a severely malnourished dog to be rescued and cared for by the loving hands of Scott and his caring and capable staff.

We cannot thank Scott enough for all his kindness and medical assistance in saving this dog.

As soon as we arrived he asked a cook in his restaurant to cook chicken for the dog...

Scott hand fed the dog the warm chicken... Scott gave this precious dog her life back.

He and his staff are true angels...
A must visit...

If you want to support this extraordinary dog rescue centre’s great efforts and results, you can do so by going to the Gecko’s Waterfall Grill for a snack or a meal, or by going to the Lava Lounge Restaurant in La Fortuna, excellent food at both locations.

You can also pay for a half day tour and volunteer here...
It will make you feel good to know that you are supporting Scott’s amazing work with dog rescues at CR Dog Rescue.

We are so grateful for his work.

Thank you, Scott.

Great veggie wrap and to die for minty mocha blended coffee. Found we are surrounded by friendly doggies inside. We enjoyed the food and environment very much.

Adorable rescue dogs, cold smoothies, and the freshest, most flavorful food you can find. Gecko's is delightful and casual. Don't miss this delicious destination!
