We wanted to try the "Luche libre" which is like American pro-wrestling. Our biggest problem was trying to communicate with the attendant at the ticket office near the main entrance. You can talk to him but he was no where in sight. Better study the website and know what kind of seats you want to ease the interface problem. The... More

We went there on a Friday night to watch a Lucha Libre event. It was super entertaining. It was a rather large group of us, I believe it was a total of about 16. We're not from there and there were originally trying to charge us about 200 pesos per person for mid range seats. Luckily, we were with a... More

Arena México is the place to see and enjoy one of the most popular and cherished mexican traditions, the Lucha Libre. Deeply rooted in the mexican culture, the luchadores are real superstars and superheroes for the mexican children and adults. The luchadores have starred movies and tv series. The plan is quite familiar, one can see families with kids since... More

What a great way to spend the evening. We paid less than 50 pesos for seats that were about 90 feet away from the ring. The seats were very good and I would only suggest spending more if you are an exxxxtreme wrestling fan. The atmosphere was so fun. We saw a few office workers in suits with masks on... More

The Lucha Libre Mexican Wrestling is pretty much ingrained in Mexican culture ... the original stars were in movies, on cereal boxes etc. It is a must see experience and is quite cheap .... the food and beer are overpriced ... but in most venues they are anyways.

My husband and I visited Mexico City since last Friday. We join a local tour to experience the local Mexican culture. Even though we do not know Spanish, we can feel the excitement of wrestling and enjoy that with the local people. The first few rounds of the show is not so exciting. But as it came to the final...

There are lucha libre matches at Arena Mexico every Tuesday and Friday (as well as possibly Sunday?). We went on a tuesday and bought the cheapest tickets (45 pesos each), and still had a very good view of the ring. If you wanted to be right up close to the luchadores and even shake their hands, you should choose the... More

Arena Mexico is just a block away from Cuauhtémoc metro station (3 pesos a journey). Tickets range from 35 pesos to 320 pesos. You can get them in advance on Ticketmaster and pay a £2 fee, of turn up on the day as we did and pay them at the Arena. We got there early - 6.30pm - and there... More
