There is a reason this place is an institution! We tried at least 8 different filling in our visits to Pupuseria Salvadoreno and they were all awesome! You cannot go wrong!

This has become a favorite place for our family. After diving, we all head here for a cold beer and great pupusas. Be forewarned, they only accept cash. The inconvenience is worth it though. In a week of vacation in San Pedro, our family has...More

One of my favorite quick and easy places to get food. The papusas are cheap and filling, and paired with the provided tomato sauce and a little bit of salt, they're the perfect lunch/dinner/afternoon snack. They start at 2.50BZ each, and are a bit larger...More
