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.

Full of must see things, such as costumes and cultural perspectives! Great food and beer! The people that goes scream and shout to their favorite fighters! So much fun!

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

Lucha Libre is a lot of fun and I recommend everyone see it at least once. To begin with the fight may seem a little over the top but it's still amazing to see them fly through the air and throw themselves at each other. The crowd really gets involved so it's a great atmosphere. Most of the show we... More

This was absolutely fantastic for a couple of reasons - the wrestlers are very entertaining, very athletic, throw each other around like you wouldn't believe, the atmosphere is crazy and it's cheap! Buy your merchandise here - you can barter, and there's so much to chose from it's not funny. Buy your tickets here - you can barter, and there's... More

We had good fun in the Arena. it breaths the world of the 70iees or whenever it was built, The show is pretty real, with chaps falling out of the ring and into the rows with visitors. We loved Maximo and gnome as Mascot.

On our first night in Mexico city, we asked the hotel staff for recommendations on local experiences and they recommended us to take a tour to the "luchas". We bought then a tour that included the entrance to the show at the Arena Mexico, a quick bite and a shot of tequila. I honestly was expecting to see the show... More
