Think of wrestling and you probably imagine large men in tights preforming theatrical choreographed routines. This is most certainly on offer at La Paz's cholita wrestling, but the stars of the show are the indigenous women fighting in traditional dress, big skirts and bowler hats. There's acrobatic moves, big hits and good-guy and bad-guy showmanship. and Shows take place in the evening, with crowds scoffing popcorn under the lights during a night of entertainment. Transport can be arranged from some of the hostels; Red Cap also offer trips.

Every Sunday in La Paz, the ruthless Cholita wrestlers come to town, leaving the foreign members of the crowd completely stunned by what they have seen before them. Expect plenty of tears, laughter and fake blood, as the Cholita woman put on a truly remarkable show. The spectacle certainly gives WWE a run for its money, as the Cholitas impress locals and tourists alike with their wrestling moves. This unique experience is what Bolivia is all about, providing you with an excellent evening of entertainment and giving you a real insight into the culture.

Just book it in La Paz at Adventure Brew, or Lokis. It is definitely not a must see, but is a fun drunken spectacle if you have the interest. Women dressed in traditional cholita dresses, perform a WWF show, and there are midgets and other wrestling signatures.
