Arena Coliseo Reviews
I've been wanting to see lucha libre in all my trips to Mexico. Finally i did it this time. Thru Viator. Thanks. It was soo good. Not just the athletes were good. Spectators were an important part of.... more »
Do not miss this. This is raw, funky, wild, wacky, athletic and very local. The wrestling is a bit over the top, campy and staged but wildly entertaining. The total time for the matches is about 2-2..... more »
Felt pretty much like watching the Mexican version of WWE. Recommend getting a guide to explain the sport’s background and how the matches work to get into the spirit of things. They sell snacks and beer at the venue, but note that no cameras (even compacts) and action cams are allowed, so you can only take pictures and videos with your phone.
This is a must do in Mexico City. The tickets are affordable, and it's fun for the whole family. If you're helped to your seat by the people in the blue vest, please tip them. There are there to help you, they will remove anyone in your seat also. The matches last about 2.5 hours total. It's different from Arena Mexico, it's closer to the ring and it's all a more intimate setting. These matches are: Los Rudos aka the bad guys v. Los Técnicos aka the good guys. Have fun, enjoy yourself, it's a great time.
