Lucha Libre, Tacos, and Beer

Witness the true power and key strength of Mexican wrestling! AKA Lucha Libre! Join the enthusiastic locals as you cheer on your wrestler of choice in an edge-of-your-seat match that will leave you breathless.

But before the action-packed show, you'll need some fuel. How do five tacos sound? Juicy, melt-in-your-mouth slow-cooked pork, marinated in a heavenly blend of spices and achiote paste and served in freshly made corn tortillas with all the trimmings. That'll do nicely. And, to wash it all down, enjoy a selection of refreshing Mexican beers.

Once you're fueled up, your guide will take you straight to the skip-the-line entrance for the Lucha Libre show.

For a perfect evening of entertainment, this Lucha Libre show is one of the best things to do in Cancun at night!
