Masks of Mexico - Lucha libre in Cancun, Tacos and Margaritas!

Spice your vacation up with a true adrenaline-fueled Mexican Fiesta by watching a live Lucha Libre show in Cancun in a local arena, tasting a variety of delicious tacos, and savoring authentic refreshing Margaritas!

The best way to know a place is though food and sports and that’s what Masks of Mexico Lucha Libre Tour in Cancun is about.

Connect with your inner Mexican, in a guided tour through the streets with your own mask. Learn everything from lucha libre, the second most popular sport in Mexico, the history and its connection with food. Visit local neighborhoods and a colorful night food market.

Learn how to make tortillas, and have an amazing dinner in one of the most traditional Mexican restaurants in Cancun with Margaritas, before entering to a lucha libre Arena where the locals go! Even when this is a public event, only few are allowed to get in, as the entrance is hidden in a restaurant’s kitchen (speakeasy). Reserved first-row seats, snacks and drinks are included, because there’s no show with no food!

We take care of everything with comfortable transportation from and to your hotel.

This tour happens only once a week, and offer very limited capacity, so if it happens that you are in town during Thursdays, you can’t miss out!

Sounds like fun? There’s still much more (and it’s all included):

  • Get your Margarita served in a branded 22 oz. yard (and take it home a souvenir).
  • Wear your own Lucha Libre mask (and take it home a souvenir).
  • Learn how to do hand-made  tortillas (make and eat your own!).
  • Listen to an authentic “Mariachi” band live. 
  • Walk through the first park in town +50 years old (now used as a night market).

Learn the history and secrets of Mexican wrestling, how everything started back in 1840, why “Luchadores” wear a mask, if Nacho Libre is real, and a full explanation of the rules so you can cheer with the locals as one of them!

Lucha libre is more than colorful masks, rapid sequences of holds, acrobatics and flying attacks. It is part of Mexican’s culture and we are here to prove it!

Even when this is a public event, only few are allowed to get in, as the entrance is hidden in a restaurant’s kitchen (speakeasy).

Forget worrying about how to get to the location, we have solved everything for you with transportation from and to your hotel!

Amazing - could not recommend more! One of the absolute highlights of our trip!! Thank you to Roy (our guide) and Alex (our driver) for a spectacular excursion in Downtown Cancun. This tour is a great way to get a little taste of different local cuisines without having to do a ton of research on your own and figure out your own transportation. I doubt we would have found these places on our own. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Cancun, especially those staying at a resort and looking to experience something a little more "real" Despite booking at the last minute (the evening before) we got a quick response from the company confirming our spot and pickup time the next morning. We got picked up from our hotel right on time, and Alex drove us into town to all the spots. Great communication and timing all around. We ended up being the only two people on the tour, which was great because we really got a chance to chat with Roy (who is lovely!) and things were able to be more tailored - for example, we told Roy we were big coffee drinkers and he ended up grabbing us an cup of cafe de olla, which was ridiculously delicious! The food overall was incredible - way better than anything we had on our trip. We got dropped off at our hotel about 4 hours after pickup, VERY full of incredible food and very ready to walk it off with a beach walk!

Great authentic experience We loved our cooking class with Diego. It was very hands on, he explained everything carefully and answered all of our questions. It was a small class which was great because we all got to take a turn and do some things by hand. The food was great and my parents and I really enjoyed and learned

Great taste of Cancun This was an excellent tour with amazing food. Our guide G was personable and knowledgable. You could tell he is very proud of his home city, Cancun. The variations of tacos was very interesting and we loved being welcomed to the 4 restaurants. If you are doing the morning tour dont eat breakfast or just a very light one, you will be full when you are done.

Fantastic Tour First our guide and driver were amazing. G was so knowledgeable and Alex keeps us safely on the road. The tacos we ate were fantastic . Very flavorful and a drink at every stop. We went to a local market that that was very economical. We stopped for dessert to get an ice cream popsicle. So delicious!! We had a great time.

Tacos, beer, and a great guide—a fun combo The trip was fun! Our main guide, Diego, was informative, friendly, and helpful. We got picked up from our hotel which was near the airport, then driven around to various Taquerias. The tacos and drinks were tasty. We met a few other gringos who were part of the trip and we all had a good time. If I come back to Cancun, I would do this again!

Great way to get some traditional Mexican food with a knowledgeable tour guide, and to see some of the city you might otherwise Did the day time food and street art tour with Alex driving and G giving the tour. It was amazing! G was knowledgeable, extremely friendly, and put up with my terrible attempts at Spanish. He knew the history of the foods and of the places we were visiting, and the hints to make the best of the meals. The places he took us all felt extremely authentic and the food was devine. Though I recommend going overboard on the habanero sauce with the carnitas - the meat is really soft but also very dense, so when you split it into two wraps, my sauce all went with one and the other was just the meat sans sauce! The art was an excellent final stop, beautiful street art and interesting themes and inspiration. Market was interesting and if I could have taken kilos of dried chillies home with me, I would. Couldn't recommend the tour enough, great way to see some of the city and get some more traditional Mexican cuisine in while you do!

Great way to see a different side of Cancun and to learn to make delicious Mexican food. We really enjoyed this food tour! Diego, our instructor and guide was open & friendly, taking time to answer any and all questions, food-related or not. Alex, our driver, held down the fort while we shopped and cooked. We had a tour around the market, which was active and interesting, and then we all went to a local restaurant for the cooking class. We made tortillas, sopas, enchiladas, quesadillas, salsa, and rice pudding, and then sat together to enjoy our feast. We met some very nice people, too. If they offered a “Part II” we would do that, too.

Awesome Tour Our guide, Diego was awesome! Our driver was great as well (unfortunately I do not remember his name). The food was awesome and Diego gave a great explanation of what to expect prior to arriving to each spot. He was kind, knowledgeable, and open to answer any questions at any time. So glad we booked this tour and Diego was our guide. Highly recommend!!!
