The biggest waterpark in the Caribbean is to be built in Cap Cana, a city destination in the Dominican Republic, known for its high-end resorts and the ocean-facing Punta Espada Golf Club.

Called El Dorado Park, the attraction site will also be the most advanced waterpark in the region.

The park is being designed by architect Andres Pineiro and has investment from businessman Carlos Cobiella and the fund investment management company, GAM Capital.

The site will extend across 115,000sq. mt. and will be due to open in 2023. The project will be rolled out in three phases. The first phase will feature an aquatic amusement park called The Water Temple, which will have capacity for 3,000 people. There will also be an amphitheatre known as the ‘El Dorado Arena’, which will have capacity for 4,000 people. The attractions will be accompanied by bars, restaurants and shops.

“Our tourism model is a world reference, and it will continue to be for investment offers and bets like this one. It is the way to distinguish yourself, to stand out and lead the market; employment, investment, leadership and innovation,” said Luis Abinader, president of the Dominican Republic.
