The arena complex consists of the hospital where delivered wounded bullfighters, slaughterhouses, restaurants and bars where you can drink a shot of tequila in between fights. And definitely take a tour of the arena during a bullfight. Usually fights are held in the afternoon. A visit can be combined with relaxing on the nearby beach.
