Learn the secrets of the most traditional and spectacular of Mexico's sports, in an authentic Mexican wrestling show in the Arena Mexico, the mecca of wrestling.
Mexican Wrestling Show: what to expect?
After meeting your guide at the Zocalo Capital Bus Stop at the scheduled time, you'll hop aboard a bus for a panoramic tour of central Mexico City. You'll get to see the Santa Veracruz Church, the Monument to the Revolution and the Glorieta de Colón before reaching the Arena Mexico for the main event of your activity.
To enjoy the spectacle to the fullest, you'll receive a lesson on the basics of the fight, to understand the history, secrets and rules of Mexican wrestling. And to get into the Mexican spirit, you'll have the opportunity to try the very best tequila, and we'll give you a traditional mask as a souvenir.
The Arena Mexico is the mecca of Mexican wrestling. Your seats, reserved close to the ring, will allow you to enjoy the fights from up close, see the variety of characters hidden behind the colourful masks, and be amazed by the elaborate techniques of the professional wrestlers.
The Lucha Libre Wrestling Show will last approximately three hours. At the end of the spectacular show, you'll return by bus to the original meeting point.
What is Mexican Wrestling?
Mexican wrestling is a kind of Olympic wrestling characterised by its spectacular acrobatics such as dangerous jumps outside the ring in a mixture of sport and drama which is as popular as football in Mexico. The wrestlers use a mask to hide their real identity, creating characters which are idolised and mythologised in equal measure by their fans.
Built in 1956 and with a capacity of 14,000, the Arena Mexico is the most important wrestling stadium in the world. Today it is the headquarters of the World Wrestling Council and is managed by the Mexican Wrestling Company, the longest running and most traditional wrestling company, which organises shows on Tuesdays and Fridays all year round.
The minimum age to take part in this activity is 12 years old.
