Santo, Blue Demon and Mil Mascaras are entrusted with the task to guard the life of Soreida (Gaynor Kote), princess of Irania, who has come to visit the country to sign an all important trade treaty. However, since foreign agents are sure to try to kidnap her, she enters the country undercover, as a karate expert on an exhibition tour - which seems like a stupid disguise but never mind. Meanwhile a decoy Princess enters the country on official mission, but she is soon killed.

Santo, Blue Demon and Mil Mascaras soon fall for three lovely ladies whom they meet at their hotel, not knowing that they are spies. When Santo takes one of the spies, Rina (Silvia Manríquez) back to his room, she slips him mickey and questions him using a truth serum. He tells her everything, but when he also tells her he thinks she's sincere, she almost immediately falls for drugged Santo and tells him (once he's out of his state again) that her father has disappeared in the Bermuda triangle.

Later: A group of foreign agents led by Godard (Carlos Suárez), who have since found out that the karate expert is really Soreida, make an attack on Soreida and her bodyguards, machine-gunning down all her bodyguards but mysteriously enough leaving the Princess and Santo, Mil Mascaras and Blue Demon standing. The three wrestlers take up pursuit while Rina is kidnapped by two men in silver suits who are able to teleport, and Soreida is taking the two other femalse spies (the girlfriends of Blue Demon and Mil Mascaras) captive.

Soon enough, the foreign agents are all taken care of except for Godard who makes another attempt at Soreida's life but she is saved by Mil Mascaras - and finally she is able to sign the treaty ...

Meanwhile: Rina has been teleported to an underground world, where all people are pure, where her father lives now, and where she is supposed to live too (nobody is allowed to return to the upper world), since it seems the world as we know it is doomed. Rina is ok with that, but she admits she misses Santo ...

Santo, Mil Mascaras and Blue Demon are accompanying the Princess Soreida on their yacht home on a route that leads right across the Bermuda Triangle ... and are never seen again - and presumably they have all been teleported down to the underground world, to keep Rina company.

A framing story is about a fisherman (Ernesto Solís), who relates the whole story to a boy who has fished a silver mask - Santo's mask - out of the sea.

 

Mexican wrestling films (aka lucha libre films) are hardly ever great simply by definition, yet if you can accept them for their utter silliness, the better of them can be wildly amusing at times. Misterio en las Bermudas however is not one of the better films, it ws obviously made on a shoestring and (apart from the underground world) lacks any special sets - actually it seems to be shot mostly in and around a Texan hotel, probably the hotel where the actors stayed during the shoot -, the action for the most part is rock-bottom - especially a scene of a shark attack doesn't even remotely come to life -, the special effects a film like this would need are simply non-existent, and the script is third-rate at best as it doesn't even try to make an attempt at bringing the different plot elements - the espionage story about the Princess, the Bermuda Triangle subplot and the whole thing about the fisherman - together, instead they seem to stand in the way of each other.

And having said all of this, why is the film ending with the explosion of an atom bomb ?

Now this all of course sounds very negative, however, if you are a lucha libre fan like me, you will find even this one amusing at points, like when you see the wrestlers in casual wear, bathing trunks and suit and tie all while masked, and some of the plottwists are so silly they are almost endearing. If you are not into masked wrestlers however (and tend to take films like this one seriously), you very possibly simply will not like Misterio en las Bermudas.
