We fought over the last bits...

It is easy to walk past this innocuous little place but it's well worth a visit. We shared a shrimp burrito, not much chance of me finishing one of those on my own due to size. Nicely presented with prawns, cabbage in a buttery sauce it was superb, packed full of shrimp. The speed that it... read more

Great food. Interesting atmosphere - some of the decorations were kids floats for the pool. Service is a little slow, but the food was worth the wait.

We were in Belize a couple years ago and ate pupusas at Waraguma. We loved them so much we made a point to go back for more this visit! They are cheap, and so delicious we went back multiple times on our most recent visit to Belize. Pupusas are a great for a snack, or also make for a great... More

Small little unpretentious restaurant on Pescador ("Middle") Street. Great pupusas with any filling you want. We heard about waits and slow service but we fortunately didn't have any issues. Good place for an inexpensive not-fancy meal.

This place was recommended to us by a local and it did not disappoint. Enjoyed it so much, we went back again another night. Octopus pupusa was the best!

Too bad it wasn't lobster season this visit, I've always enjoyed the seafood burrito here. This time we ventured out of our comfort zone only slightly and opted for the Tres Carnes Burrito for two. No, it doesn't say "for two" on the menu but you can easily feed two or three with one burrito. The food continues to please... More

Very decent place to eat, not too pricey or fancy but the portions will get you full. Fish and shrimp burrito are the best

Our family of four received a recommendation from a local resident to try Waruguma. It was our first night in Ambergris Caye and boy was this a hit. Our server was so polite and friendly. The food was phenomenal! We had never tried pupusas before. Everyone must try one when in Ambergris Caye. We ordered two shrimp and one with... More
