La Mandona Acapulco: Bar, Cantina, Restaurant… and Lucha Libre!

Over 150 years ago Lucha Libre (free wrestling) started in Mexico and has since then been a big part of Mexican culture and developed a lot of tradition in the country. Mexican luchadores (wrestlers) are known by their colorful masks never revealing their identity and their high flying maneuvers that has even been adopted in other countries such as the USA.

Right on the main strip of Acapulco you will find a charming place called La Mandona, which is a bar, restaurant and cantina. It is decorated in classic Mexican style, but what makes this place special is what happens every wednesday night.

In the middle of the bar there is a big wrestling ring which is where hours of Lucha Libre (free wrestling) occurs in the evening. It is a very intimate setting as the audience is seated right up against the ropes, so you might want to hold onto your beer once the luchadores enters the ring!

They have a wide selection of colorful luchadores each with their own signature moves and personality. Every week the roster is rotated, so even if you go every week it always feels fresh and new.

On wednesdays there is a $50 pesos cover charge in the evening when the show is on. On other days it is free where the establishment feels more like a traditional cantina with snacks, foods and beverages at a fair price considered it is located right on the main strip. The staff is very friendly and all are very excited whenever there are matches going on.

If you are looking for a fun evening infused with Mexican culture this place is sure to exceed your expectations. If interested you can read more about the history of Lucha Libre and the culture behind it here.

I’ve been using Hoteles Acapulco web page for long time. I’ve checked it a few times against other pages and here it always gave me the best deal without any hidden costs that pop out in the last moment. Frankly speaking I haven’t tried to book a car with Hoteles Acapulco, I didn’t need to, but I have booked two different hotels and once a hotel and flight package. The three times I used the web page I was very satisfied. It is easy to follow, I’m not an internet geek and I didn’t have any problems with the booking and the whole booking process was pretty fast. Once I wanted to stay at Acapulco Playa Suites that I had already known but instead I chose a promotion they offered at that time at Acapulco Copacabana Hotel and I paid almost the same. I have already recommended their services to my friends and they were also happy with their vacation.

I booked a trip with flight and hotel included and it was very user friendly, was even able to modify my trip and add transportation. Nice to have it all under one roof. Email support always answered in a timely manor. Will use MexResorts for our next trip for sure.
