Ordered the crazy pupusa, tropical fish and lobster burrito with coconut cream. Portions were generous and delicious. The burrito with coconut cream was so large and rich we only finished half and took the rest home. It actually comes with a lobster claw and chunks of lobster sitting on top of the burrito as well as some chunks inside it.... More

Love it waraguma on middle street and love it now on back street for a couple of years. A must stop for local, Latin food. The pupusas are incredible

Waruguma, hands down, has the best lobster burrito I have ever had in my life! This is a "must do" when you're in San Pedro. I highly recommend it!

This was our first (and one of our favorite) meal in San Pedro, It was a short walk from our hotel and is unassuming from the street. It's open air (as may places are) and simple in decor, but very clean and had attentive and pleasant service. if it's in season, get the lobster, period. My GF had twin tails... More

The manager at our hotel recommended this place to us. We bought a whole roasted chicken which came with over a dozen fresh tortillas and pico de gallo for 10 bucks US. We took it back to our condo for a quick delicious lunch and had the rest the next day. Not really a good place to dine in, there... More

Tons of food for the dollar, well prepared, fast service and cold beer. Really good experience if you are looking for a lunch place while you tour town.

After doing some scuba diving we asked our local dive master his favorite place to eat and Waruguma is where he told us to go. It was a little tough to find but asking a couple locals got us there. Had the lobster fajitas and they were great. We also ordered some of the little things they were cooking out... More

A bit hard to locate, down middle street, but once you arrive you will not be disappointed. Dirt floors to begin with, but they just add character. Ate here twice in the week we were on the island. Had lobster in coconut the first time, and BINGO it was delicious. Second time we had the pupusas's, authentic and tasted great.
