Lucha Libre Experience in Mexico City

By Estacion Mexico Free Tours
Soak up one of Mexico’s most beloved past times, the wrestling style called ‘Lucha libre,’ on this 4-hour cultural outing in the country’s capital city. Sip a glass of pulque, an unusual pre-Columbian beverage, at a traditional drinking hole before watching masked wrestlers clash at either the historic Arena Mexico or La Arena Coliseo. Small groups of fewer than 15 people ensure you’ll have an authentic experience without having to brave the big city nightlife unaccompanied.

Meet your guide at either the downtown bus station, Metrobús Cuauhtemoc, or the nearby Palacio de Bellas Artes to begin your evening tour. Your night starts at a ‘pulqueria,’ a bar specializing in pulque, the sweet, milky, lightly alcoholic drink beloved by the Aztecs. Then, you'll head to Arena Mexico, a decades-old indoor stadium famous for its thrilling lucha libre events. Cheer along as the outrageously outfitted ‘luchadores’ battle before an enthusiastic crowd. During the lively match, your guide will explain the history and quirks of Mexican-style wrestling, such as why the fighters sport colorful masks. Alternatively, if you've booked your experience for a Saturday you'll visit the iconic La Arena Coliseo. After the event, your tour ends outside the Arena.

Incredible experience with Javier who was energetic, knowledgeable and all around a great person and guide. Highly recommend this free walking tour of downtown Mexico City which can feel overwhelming if walking around alone. Javier broke it down for us and explained what we were seeing. Made the place a lot more digestible! He also gave great suggestions for authentic Mexican restaurants and for leisure as well (the opera at the palace of arts). Highly recommend!

Also - if you go in this tour you get discounts to their other tours (Teotihuacan for example which I recommend doing with them as well - we went the next day with Ulysses- excellent guide!!)

Check the schedule for luche libre at Arena Mexico. In town and close. Arrive 30 minutes early (weekdays as we did this on a Tuesday) and buy your tickets at the window to the left of the main entrance. You then will go through a pat down security check. If you have a luche libre mask, feel free to wear it! You will get seated by an usher so tip 20 pesos. No hats. Food is minimal inside (dry sandwiches etc) but cheap along with beer. Restrooms clean and have attendants. Please tip again. There were 4 ‘shows’ with each except the last having 3 rounds. Best views are seats that face the entryway of the wrestlers as the big TV screens are above. Two hours. Taxis waiting outside for double the regular price so walk a few blocks before hailing one. Lots of families! Tickets on the floor were $20USD each.

Aldo was awesome! He was very knowledgeable about the history of Mexico City, specifically in the politics, the culture, and the how Mexico City shaped into the city it is today. He is very passionate about the history of Mexico City and it shows. Aldo led the tour to the Lucha Libre show and it was really fun! Highly recommended!

The tour was actually good and the wrestling was super fun to watch and the tour guide was very nice. The only thing I'll say is that it is quite pricey for what you get. This tour is really for tourists who are nervous about going to the match themselves and need someone to show them where to go and what to do. The tour cost $45 per person, but the actual tickets to the match were only around $6. You do get a few beers and and some mariachi music, but if you're feeling adventurous you can very easily just buy the tickets online and go yourself and save quite a bit of money. I will say it was fun to be there with a group, so if you are looking for more of a group experience and a guide to show you the ropes than this is certainly a good tour to go with.

Was great to meet other travellers and see a local Mexican salsa club and try local drinks. Guides were very friendly and great and upfront with what we would be doing - well organised. However, the wrestling only lasted an hr or so and thus I felt a little short changed from the price I had paid

We joined Ulysses for the free walking tour in English and it was amazing. Beyond his broad knowledge and enthusiasm, he went above and beyond to help us out on getting organized in Mexico City. Thank you again. You are a great guy & guide!

It was fun, but we missed the beginning because the guides kept us at the pulqueria too long. When we finally arrive at Arena Mexico the fights were about to start and we couldn't see any of the opening show. After having this experience I would say that is better to go by yourself, buying the tickets either at ticketmaster or at the arena ticket box office. For the price of the tour you can buy better seats, that was the other issue, we were far away from the ring, and we could see just fine, but I bet a closer seat would be more fun. I tried the tour instead of buying the tickets by myself because it was my first time going without being familiar with the location, but I learned that is actually very safe to get there, so next time I'll skip the tour.

We booked this event and was sent confirmation of our booking. We showed up to the event and could not find them. We finally find a message through the booking (not email or phone call) that the event is cancelled because of Covid restrictions. That is ok with us but do not book until city eases Covid restrictions. Tour company should of known and cancelled ahead of time, and/or called us to let us know so we don't pay a taxi and show up at the event. Still waiting for a refund.

To be clear, the actual Lucha Libre event was fantastic. My issue was with the location to meet. We were to meet at an enormous roundabout with many corners and Metro exits. We arrived early and wandered all over with no success. Even our concierge had difficulty determining which location to go to. As it was, we ubered over to the event, looking for the telltale pink shirts/umbrellas an hour before the event was to start. We sat at a little hole-in-the-wall having a cerveza with another couple who had the same issue. Never did see the pink outfits.
My recommendation is to uber to the Arena Mexico on your own. Ubers are extraordinarily inexpensive (compared to any city I've used them in). Buy tickets at the ticket office. DO NOT BUY FROM SCALPERS. They will show you first row seats and charge 500 pesos.each ticket. We purchased at the ticket office for 380 pesos for the two of us. We sat in the 6th row. The event was a blast..it is great theatre...very cheesy, but that's what we were expecting.
All in all, the evening was great, although we were out Cdn$90+ as we ended up paying on our own...total if you do it yourself was about Cdn$60 with high(er) quality masks...grantd, we did not get any of the other offerings (dancing/mezcal, etc, but the experienece itself was fantastic and am so happy that we did not bail on the evening just because we did not find the group.

My wife and I had a GREAT time on our evening of Lucha Libre. Our guides started us out at a really cool dancehall, full of energy and cheap booze, my wife danced while I drank and got to know the other people on our tour. We then headed to the Arena, were given lucha masks and went to our seats. They were great and we had a good view of the action! They don’t like people videoing the wrestling but I saw lots of people doing it anyways. It was all done by 10pm, the merch tables (inside and outside the arena) were all still open so we stocked up. It was a really fun night.
