Overview

After a mezcal tasting at a nearby pub, your guide gives you a tour of Arena Mexico with an insider’s perspective.

Highlights
  • Go with a former luchador: Learn about the sport from an insider
  • Enjoy a mezcal and guacamole tasting before the show
  • Let the luchador guide navigate crowds and the arena for you
  • Admission ticket and souvenir Lucha libre mask included
What to Expect
Start the evening at a local pub in the heart of downtown Mexico City. With a former luchador as your guide, listen to insider stories about the wrestlers' lives and careers as you enjoy a tasting of mezcal and guacamole. Next, head to the Arena Mexico, often called the “cathedral of Lucha libre.” Gain a perspective rarely available to visitors, as you take a tour of the arena. Going with a former luchador may afford you the opportunity to meet the wrestlers before the show. As the fight begins, your guide explains the rules and characters of the sport, which can be confusing without proper context. Since the show ends after dark, the guide navigates public transit or arranges a taxi for you (own expense).

it was Dec 2018 that we took this tour but it is still one of the highlights of the month we spent in Mexico. Our tour guide was exceptional and the whole night from the tequila tasting to the wrestling was so much fun. Highly recommended

We had the best time going to a Friday night lucha libre show - everything from the mezcal tasting to the show was wonderful. Don’t hesitate to book this tour - it’s way more fun to go with a group!
