Ready to get up close and personal with one of Mexico’s most popular sports? It’s going to get exciting!
Our unique Mexico City city tour (say that ten times fast!) starts at a typical Mexican pub called a ‘cantina’. There, you’ll enjoy a couple drinks, a light dinner, and get to know the rest of the travellers on your tour. Most importantly, though, your local Urban Adventures guide will give you a briefing of what’s in store for the rest of the evening, including the basic rules of the eccentric Lucha Libre.
Lucha Libre (aka Mexican wrestling), is the second-most watched sport in Mexico, and hands down one of the most exciting things you can do while visiting Mexico City. For a truly local experience, we’ll hop on the subway to the Arena Mexico to catch the fight. We’ll get you good seats in the arena so you can truly live the experience and see the best matches of the night.
Immerse yourself in the crazy, exciting, energetic atmosphere of the arena and really get into it - scream and whistle whatever you want, while you experience unique and dramatic Lucha Libre moves like La Quebradora, El Martineta, La Segadora, and many others. You’ll watch some of the best wrestlers in the country in an experience that will leave you awestruck for the two hours you spend at the Lucha Libre.
At the end of this unreal experience, you will have time to buy some souvenirs, like the mask of the best wrestler you saw in the show, so you can take some fun photos with your masks on.
To keep the excitement of the night going, we’ll head to the very fun Mexican musician’s square of Garibaldi, where we will experience Mexican Mariachi music and many other Mexican music bands (go ahead, practice your Spanish singing skills and dance moves!). We’ll enjoy the atmosphere of the square for about an hour before visiting another pubs and clubs by the downtown area and whenever you want your UA guide will give you directions on how to walk or grab a taxi safely back to your accommodation.
