This event was great! It was easy to meet up, everyone was very friendly, we had a couple mezcal drinks, and then went off to the show! Our guide Arturo was fun and helped explain what the heck was going on. Definitely would recommend!
Start the evening at a local pub near the Palace of Fine Arts (Palacio de Bellas Artes) 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).
