Papusa and Lobster Burrito!!!

We always eat here when we are in Belize. It's the best buy on the island. It's cheap plus good. I always get the papusas but when lobster season opens my husband always gets the lobster burrito. It's huge, packed with lobster plus a tail on top and the best thing ever. Waruguma has great... read more

Got their signature lobster burrito. The whole lobster tail was raw and cold in the center. has to ask 3 times to get drinks. Would not recommend over so many better places in San Pedro.

We heard about Waruguma from a local....and boy were they right!!! They said try the Lobster Burrito for 2....BEST EVER!!! If you are looking for a quick bite be prepared to wait a bit cause everything in Ambergris Caye is on island time and we did not mind one bit. It is so worth the wait but you're on vacation...

I have been coming to SP for 12 years. Eating at Waruguma for almost that long. She had expanded twice. Her food is always fresh and tasty. My favorite is the lobster burrito, but her pupusas are really good. Atmosphere is beach basic and no view since on Midddle St.....but the food more than makes up for that. If you... More

Great food easy to find food is cooked right out front! We always eat here when in Belize. We had grilled lobster and rice and beans and of course papposas service was prompt and friendly. Lots of locals eat here. They do lunch or dinner check them out u won't be disappointed.

Every local that we asked for recommendations suggest trying the papusas from this place. They are made on the street and are pretty quick and very cheap. Tasted pretty good.

I was craving a lobster burrito yesterday and had seen the reviews for Waraguma so headed there for lunch. We had some banking to do up the street so we went to the original location on Middle St and sat inside. Yes it was hot, humid, and there were a lot of flies but that is just how it is... More

The food here is good and the prices are reasonable compared to other places in town. Belize had gotten more expensive and in many restaurants you can expect costs close to US pricing. I would eat here even if the ambience is not as nice as some other places in town.

Fantastic value for the money. We love this for lunch or dinner. Great seafood. If you have never had a pupusa you simply must try the chicken and cheese or shrimp and cheese. Aother local favorite is the lobster burrito.

The secret sauce on this dish makes it! Very good food. We also ordered lobster papusas, which were quite tasty. Could I get a gallon of that watermelon juice, too? My only complaint were the amount of flies in the restaurant. I realize they keep the doors open, but would have appreciated an attempt to do something about the problem.
