Pío Romero Bosque (1860, Suchitoto – 10 December 1935) was President of El Salvador 1 March 1927–1 March 1931.

He is reputed to be one of the few if not the only Salvadoran president who was able to strike a political balance in government during his administration. This balance is often known as the "natural mix" – a balance between concession to demands of the various components of society and repression of the same in a given country. He was a scion of the Meléndez-Quiñónez "dynasty", who rather than impose his own heir as President, allowed a democratisation of the country with its first free elections in 1931, won by Arturo Araujo.
