Find this unassuming little place right in town. Order a lobster or fish burrito, pay a lower price than you expect and receive so much food you'll have to take half of it home. I had lobster chunks in my burrito, and an entire split tail to top it off. Can't go wrong!

This place was recommended by locals. Very cool little place right on the street in the middle of town. Papusa was recommended by locals, lobster burrito by waiter. I had a crab and a lobster papusa. The lobster one was much bigger and tasted better. Both were good. BZ 7 each. My wife had the lobster fajitas which were above... More

We biked here from Xanadu Island Resort, and were so hungry - we weren't disappointed! The waiter recommended that my husband and I split the lobster burrito, rather than each order one, as he said it was huge. We're glad we listened- it definitely filled us up! There was no skimping on the lobster either- there was lobster on top,... More

Waruguma was recommended by a couple we met at our hotel who had been to San Pedro 5 times. I was a little surprised by the place when we got there and honestly not sure if I would have chanced it without a personal recommendation. The meal we had at the restaurant was so good, we got another meal for... More

Multiple people recommended the restaurant, including one with seafood allergies who claimed to take her allergy medicine with her to eat lobster burritos. It sounded like risky behavior, but we decided that meant the lobster buirritos were really good, and they were. There was lobster inside the flour tortilla along with rice and beans. There was shredded cabbage with a... More

Had the Lobster Burrito, Fajitas and a few Papusas which ran us about 60 Belize or 30 USD. Some people seem to complain about the price, but this was one of the less expensive meals we had in San Pedro where there is a premium for everything. The Lobster Burrito had cam with a full large lobster tail with some... More

Small restaurant in the heart of town. Everything we ordered was really good. They have HUGE lobster burritos for less than 10 bucks! What a bargain. This restaurant is enclosed and gets pretty warm, in spite of the fans. Worth it!

Fresh cooked food that tastes amazing and is very affordable. Go for the lobster burrito--two huge lobster tails in a burrito covered with sauce. Wash it down with some fresh made watermelon juice. This place is a must try before you leave San Pedro!
