I've gotten it at Star Market / Shaw's. They have a decent selection in the Mexican / international food aisle but maybe call ahead. Holding a bottle in my hand, the actual name is El Yucateco Salsa Picante de Chile Habanero. Also, if you frequent a Mexican restaurant that has it, most will sell you a bottle at or near their cost, especially if you explain you're in a pinch. That's what I used to do before I found it at the grocery store. Good luck!

Their website says a place in Hull will sell it (www.saucestore.com)

Not sure how 'authentic Latino' it is (meaning, is this a novelty 'Latino' item like Old El Paso OR is this something I'd find in just about in any Latino home?). If its real Latino, I'd suggest Compare Market in Chelsea and in Lynn. Or if you aren't that daring, I'd check Market Basket in Chelsea. (Chelsea store only since its so big and they have a larger than average selection of Latino products)

*shrug* Just a guess...

I always buy it from the "Mexican ethnic section." It's not rare or difficult to find at all.

It's also awesome. I'm picky about hot sauce (fuck Tabasco, what total shit that is) and El Yucateco Verde is my go to choice at Mexican/Salvadorean restaurants that you find around here.
