Punta Cana has made waves across the travel industry this year thanks to its record popularity and unique attractions. This week, the Dominican Republic’s most sought-after resort destination opened a massive new event venue called The Legend Arena.

With a price tag of over $30 million, the brand-new high-tech venue is one of the largest cultural investments to date in Punta Cana. The venue, which faced significant setbacks due to COVID-19 and later financial troubles, has officially opened within the Dorado Park theme park.

The main event venue is an eclectic amphitheater featuring Roman-inspired and modern elements. Combined, two worlds collide for an impressive and breathtaking design that can accommodate everything from massive concerts to acrobatic performances. 

The amphitheater is built using cutting-edge lighting and sound technology. According to Carlos Cobiella, the CEO of Dorado Park, the new venue is already attracting significant international attention.
