Concierge Tip of the Week: Lucha Libre Wrestling

Mexican Wrestling (Lucha Libre) is a classical and one of the most enjoyable performances I have been to.

Mexican wrestling is a real show, obviously blows are not real and they do not seem to be aggressive or violent at all. Stunts are the most spectacular.

I cannot believe how they jump in between and above the strings, how they jump in the air passing above their opponents and then tangling up with each other and give a spectacular somersault. It is amazing to identify all the chokeholds (It is an art!); the most popular are “The Breaker” (La Quebradora), “The Scissors” (Las Tijeras), “The Horse” (El Caballo) or “The Locksmith” (La Cerrajera). The Lucha Libre Shows are held every Friday at La Arena Mexico at 8:00 p.m.

A fascinating experience
I would like to recommend the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico, a show full of magic, a fan which portraits the cultural diversity of Mexico’s different states.

The costumes, colours, music and choreographies convey in a unique experience that gives us goosebumps.

This is the most famous Mexican ballet company. The beauty of this show is one of a kind.
My favourite act?
Absolutely, La Danza del Venado (Deer Dance)
The ballet performs Wednesdays and Sundays at the Palace of the Fine Arts.
