The Lucha Libre Mexican Wrestling is pretty much ingrained in Mexican culture ... the original stars were in movies, on cereal boxes etc.

It is a must see experience and is quite cheap .... the food and beer are overpriced ... but in most venues they are anyways.

My husband and I visited Mexico City since last Friday. We join a local tour to experience the local Mexican culture. Even though we do not know Spanish, we can feel the excitement of wrestling and enjoy that with the local people. The first few rounds of the show is not so exciting. But as it came to the final few rounds, it's much more interesting and people enjoy a lot.

Remember camera cannot be brought into the venue and please reserve some time to shop after the shows as there are a lot of souvenirs and T-shirt which are only available in there then in other shops.

There are lucha libre matches at Arena Mexico every Tuesday and Friday (as well as possibly Sunday?). We went on a tuesday and bought the cheapest tickets (45 pesos each), and still had a very good view of the ring. If you wanted to be right up close to the luchadores and even shake their hands, you should choose the ones around the ring or at the back of the ring. The fights were very entertaining and a good evening out for people of all ages. My boyfriend very much enjoyed the scantily clad girls who introduce the wrestlers!! Vendors come round during the match selling beer, popcorn, all sorts! It does get a little chilly in the arena so bring a coat.
Nearest metro is Cuauhtemoc, but Balderas is very close too.
