I went to Arena Mexico last Dia de la Independecia so there were a lot of tourists around. You know when there's a lot of tourists there are also a lot of pesky and persistent scalpers and merchants that'll force you to buy lucha masks and other lucha libre equipment. Firmly say "No" and buy tickets at the arena only.... More

Lucha Libre is quite an experience! It was mostly locals on the Friday I went, but also plenty of foreigners like me. Only buy tickets from the counter--firmly say "No, gracias!" to scalpers and they'll leave you alone. I recommend exact change for the counter as well--they'll try to sell you a more expensive ticket if you hand them a... More

Went along on Tuesday night with a german couple I met during the day and had a fun night (but we did get scammed). We got a taxi there as we were running late and were told by a local that the metro would be very crowded at that time of night so paid about 25 pesos from centro, but... More

We walked to the Mexico Arena from our hotel and purchased tickets at the window. For not much we purchased three tickets in the second row, and this is where you want to be to enjoy the total visual spectacle of this athletic sport. Men and women participate in throwing each other around both in and out of the ring.... More

I used to go every week. More than once. I used to bring my girlfriend. It's not really the sort of place most people go on a "date" but then you'll see business types, families and groups of friends out for a good time. It is the most fun that can be had by several hundred to several thousand strangers... More

We attended a Lucha Libre on a Tuesday night at Arena Mexico. It was fantastically hilarious. We purchased our tickets on Ticketmaster before we left for Mexico and checked international will call. There was a special box office window for us to pick up tickets. We arrived about twenty minutes before the show started. It was great fun for my... More

Do the touristy stuff and museums during the day and save one night for Lucha Libre! I loved it not because (most of) the guys are fit and showing a lot of skin. I loved it because I get to hang out with locals! They are so into their teams/fighters and the energy the locals bring to the arena is... More

Watching Mexican wrestling was one of our highlights. I didn’t realize how funny it would be. And watching the crowd react is a fun as watching the wrestling itself. And you can get some beer and snacks while you watch. We went to the show on December 30th, 2014. “Super Porky” was one of the wrestlers, who seemed to be... More

We saw the Tuesday night Luchadores show and it was the most fun! Tickets are very cheap and you can buy from the box office on the evening. We loved the atmosphere in the arena, with all the food and drink vendors calling for business, and the wrestling fans dressed up in their masks and capes. The show was really... More

I went for the League of Legends Latinoamerican finals and it was great! A really technological installation was made, with screens everywhere, excellent organization and the Arena Mexico building is beautiful from the inside.
