Fun and experience

Don't miss that! Even our kids enjoyed the show. Nice way to experience local culture. Even though those fights are show, it's still a fascinating performance

This was the worst 2 hours I've spent on a vacation in my life. It was so bad, I felt embarrassed for all the actors. Tickets are cheap and it's Mexican culture, but those are the only positives that I can think of.

This was one of our favorite activities! 4 matches that gradually had better production value, including the dancing girls before each match. Drinks, snacks, and luchador masks can be bought from your seats at very reasonable prices. It is everything you would hope it would be. Hokey drama, acrobatics, pageantry, glitter, sequins, and asskickery...and midgets. Our son LOVED it! And... More

We went to see Lucha Libre on a Friday night, and it was just about the most fun I've ever had! I bought front row tickets online and they were about $20 per person. The line at will call (line 5 seems to be where they ushered all Americans to) was long, but we didn't arrive terribly early and we... More

Lucha Libre is a must (it’s so outrageous and entertaining, you won’t regret it for a second) and, despite what some may say, Arena Mexico is completely safe and accessible without paying for an overpriced tour. We (two women in our 20s and 60s) took the metrobus from downtown and had to walk just one block to the venue. On... More

When my daughter said this was a "must-do" part of our trip, I could barely contain my laughter. But it was actually a lot of fun, in a hokey, "I hope no one I know sees me here" kind of way. The action was very predictable and obviously put-on (to say it looked 'rehearsed' gives rehearsing a bad name), and... More

Lucha Libre was on my Husband's "must do" list in Mexico City, and Im so glad we went. We had such a great time! I recomment arriving at least 30 mins before the start time to allow enough time to get tickets. We purchased ours online through Ticketmaster but still had to line up in a general line for collection,... More

We actually saw the Lucha Libre at Arena Coliseo. I have never watched Mexican wrestling (except in the movie Nacho Libres) or WWE. Some friends had bought tickets and we joined them. We brought the kids ages 16 and 12. We had a blast. While it is clear that it is all staged, it is very entertainment. I haven't laughed... More

Tonight, Saturday, we watched Luche Libre at the smaller Arena Coliseo. It was a blast. For only like $175 MEX you can great seats in the front 5 rows and the wresters from time to time end up flying into the front seats and interacting with the crowd. The wrestlers were actually very acrobatic and athletic and all their moves... More

Yes, going to the "Lucha libre" show is quite an unusual experience for many, and worth to try for more. But what really makes sense is to take the TURILUCHAS to go to see the lucha libre show (similar to WWE, but less talk and more pirouettes). This hop-on hop-off bus takes you from Reforma 222 and goes around this... More
