Live la vida loca in Mexico City on an immersive tour that reveals the capital's nightlife. Ideal for first-time visitors and solo travelers, this jam-packed tour includes a visit to a traditional cantina for dinner and drinks, a raucous lucha libre match, mariachi music at Garibaldi Square, and a night cap in the Zocalo. Plus, a small group means you'll receive personalized attention from a guide.
  • Make the most of Mexico City’s nightlife on this guided evening excursion
  • Experience a traditional cantina, a lucha libre match, and mariachi music
  • A great choice for solo travelers and first-time visitors 
  • Wrestling tickets, public transportation, and a souvenir included in tour cost
What to Expect
Meet your guide and fellow revelers in the Centro Historico, not far from the Zocalo. Your first stop is dinner and drinks at a popular cantina, where you’ll eat a tasty meal while learning the details of your evening out. After dinner, hop on the subway with your guide and group and ride to the lucha libre arena. There, find your reserved seat and get a quick tutorial on the rules of the theatrical masked wrestling that is among Mexico’s most beloved sports. Then, cheer with the crowd as luchadores (wrestlers) leap into the ring. Then, head for Garibaldi Square, where you’ll sing and dance to roaming mariachi bands. As your tour winds down, return to the Zocalo area to top off the evening with drinks. Your guide can then help you hail a cab or give you pointers on where to continue the night out on your own.

I did this tour last night, led by Jacinto. He was awesome. He has a passion for Lucha Libre and a lot of fun to be around. He schooled us on how to identify good tequila, taught us about mariachi, and yelled his head off at Lucha Libre.

Between the delightfully raucous luchadores and surreal swarms of mariachis, it's hard to tell who was more entertaining. But it was probably our tour guide, Adriana. She was energetic, attentive, and seemed to be having the most fun out of all of us. Adriana taught us
