Lucha Libre, which literally translates to 'free fighting', is an essential part of modern Mexican culture and a favourite pastime. Experience the passion of the arena and see how locals enjoy this traditional spectacle. This match features acrobatics, rehearsed tricks, costume changes and colourful masks, keeping the luchadores identity a secret.
The rules of Lucha Libre resemble American wrestling where the luchador (fighter) has to pin down his opponent for three seconds over the course of three rounds, usually, the fights involve the técnicos (good guys) wrestling against the rudos (bad guys). You'll also see female wrestlers known as luchadoras, male wrestlers dressed in drag called éxoticos and los minis, the dwarves fighters.
End the night going into a classic saloon. Grab drinks and listen to traditional music in a fascinating urban scenario.
