Get amongst Mexico's Holy Trinity of entertainment: Cantinas, Mariachi and Lucha Libre wrestling. Sip some tequila at a cantina, shuffle and sway to Mariachi music, and watch masked wrestlers dive, fly, writhe, and grandstand for the audience - all on this Mexico City tour you'd be loco to miss.

Highlights:

  • Enjoy an unforgettable night of local life in Mexico City
  • Cheer on your new favourite wrestler at a Lucha Libre free-style wrestling match
  • Grab some drinks and dinner with new friends at a local Mexican cantina
  • Sing and dance your heart out at the Mariachi music square 
   GENERAL

Overview:

Escape from the routine of visiting museums and cultural areas while you are in Mexico City. Get a real taste of local life by having a drink with friends at a "cantina" (a traditional mexican pub) and then cheering on your new favourite wrestler at a Lucha Libre match. Sing Mexican Mariachi songs with a live band and if you still have enough energy, dance the night away to upbeat rhythms at the best downtown clubs. Get ready for an unforgettable experience you don't want to miss!

 
More Details:

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 city tour (say that ten times fast!) starts at a typical Mexican pub called a ‘cantina’. There, you’ll enjoy a couple drinks, a light dinner, and get to know the rest of the travellers 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.

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.

To keep the excitement of the night going, we’ll head to the very fun Mexican musician’s square of Garibaldi, where we will experience Mexican Mariachi music and many other Mexican music bands (go ahead, practice your Spanish singing skills and dance moves!). We’ll enjoy the atmosphere of the square for about an hour before visiting another pubs and clubs by the downtown area and whenever you want your UA guide will give you directions on how to walk or grab a taxi safely back to your accommodation. 

 
Additional Information:

What to bring:
