Just got back from a week in PV. Drove past the arena where there was a sign for bull fights on Wednesday evenings. However more than one taxi driver told me they stopped the bull fights a couple of years ago. If anyone else has an update, please post it.

We paid $35 a ticket, and took a taxi to the bullring, we got there a bit early, had a few beers (Corona's are $2 each and the beer vendors... More
