Mexico offers traditional and cutting-edge entertainment alike. Spectacles unique in the world are on show, such as lucha libre free-style wrestling – a superbly popular entertainment – or charrería, Mexican-style rodeo; along with top theater plays, an extensive calendar of musicals, concerts, opera, chamber music and even street theater.
Similarly, the sports events on offer range from traditional soccer to baseball seasons, regattas, car races and other kinds of unusual events that might awaken an interest in you for new experiences.
All of this is possible thanks to the extensive events infrastructure: stadiums, racetracks, convention centers, sports facilities, auditoriums, theaters, cinemas, rodeos, velodromes and gymnasiums, among other venues for such activities.
Proof of these are the major world events that have been held here: the Olympics, the World Cup, the Pan American games, golf tournaments, regattas, professional races, the Mexican Tennis Open, fishing tournaments and the tours of world-famous singers and bands.
You can also choose between a huge variety of kinds of show: comic, dramatic, romantic, musical, suspense and experimental; along with soccer, baseball, basketball, tennis, Tae Kwon Do, motocross, lucha libre freestyle wrestling and many more.
Whatever you choose, the excitement and fun you will experience at these spectacles, in particular the most traditional of them, will have children and adults alike cracking up in laughter and abandoning formalities to chant a traditional porra, or fan song.
Some of the most popular venues for these kind of events are the Estadio Azteca (now known as the Guillermo Cañedo Stadium) in Mexico City; the Guadalajara Convention Center; the Parque Fundidora, in Monterrey; the Juriquilla Bull Ring, in Querétaro; the Teatro Juárez, in Guanajuato, and the Cancun Center convention center, in Quintana Roo.
