“Transportation was disorganized and this was probably due to poor planning of timing. We spent too much time at certain places. so Itzel told us we had to take a cab to Lucha Libre. After waiting for 15 mins, she made us walk to the subway. We should have just taken the subway all along, even though the subway was sketchy. We only got an hour at Lucha Libre and given the name of the tour, it would have been nice to have at least 2 hours there.”

“you should update your tour description online- it says that tour participants get a souvenir wrestler mask, but we actually got a shot of tequila instead. (still awesome!)”

“Itzel was such a fun tour guide! She was spunky and super energetic. I wasn't really sure what to expect with this tour but it far exceeded our expectations. We had such a great time and would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a really fun night out in Mexico City.”
ITINERARY

Ready to get up close and personal with one of Mexico’s most popular sports? It’s going to get exciting!

Our unique Mexico City tour (say that ten times fast!) starts at a typical Mexican pub called a cantina. Here, you’ll enjoy a couple drinks (at your own expense) and get to know the rest of the travelers on your tour. Most importantly, though, your local Urban Adventures guide will give you a briefing of what’s in store for the rest of the evening, including the basic rules of the eccentric lucha libre.

As we drink, you’ll learn about the story of tequila and mezcal, and your guide will get you up to date on Mexico’s world famous party culture, from mariachis and  jarochos to banda music. 

To keep the excitement of the night going, we’ll head to another cantina by the Mexican musician’s square of Garibaldi, where we will experience Mexican Mariachi music and many other Mexican music bands. We’ll enjoy the atmosphere of the square for about an hour before heading out to the arena to support the best “Luchadores” of the country.

Lucha libre (aka Mexican wrestling), is the second-most watched sport in Mexico, and hands down one of the most exciting things you can do while visiting Mexico City. For a truly local experience, we’ll hop on the subway to the Arena Mexico to catch the fight. We’ll get you good seats in the arena so you can truly live the experience and see the best matches of the night.

Immerse yourself in the crazy, exciting, energetic atmosphere of the arena and really get into it - scream and whistle whatever you want, while you experience unique and dramatic lucha libre moves like La Quebradora, El Martineta, La Segadora, and many others. You’ll watch some of the best wrestlers in the country in an experience that will leave you awestruck for the two hours you spend at the lucha libre.

At the end of this unreal experience, you will have time to buy some souvenirs, like the mask of the best wrestler you saw in the show, so you can take some fun photos with your masks on.

After all the dancing, singing, drinking, and cheering, we’ll be ready to go back to where it all began, our meeting point, where your guide will offer suggestions for where to continue the party. If you prefer to hit the hay, you can take a cab back to your hotel with the help of your local tour guide.
