On our last night in town, we made it to the Arena Coliseo de Guadalajara, for Mexico's own version of freestyle wrestling–Lucha Libre!
Lucha Libre is similar to America's WWE, but, and I know this is hard to believe...even more insane. Wrestlers wear dramatic outfits and masks, the fights are impressive and sometimes, the luchadores will even launch themselves high up into the air to smother their much 'hated' opponents. The noise level is unbelievable as the rowdy fans jump out of their chairs to hackle each other, and of course the wrestlers. It's complete and utter mayhem, and I absolutely loved it.
Fighting nights are Tuesdays and Sundays. Tickets cost around 60-150 pesos, and can be purchased through ticketmaster, or at the arena. A third option is available through Estacion Central (also known as Red Pub), that organizes a drink/ticket/bus package (175 pesos per person) to take you to the arena.
