Katmandú Park Punta Cana closes its doors

Punta Cana.- One year after its grand opening, Katmandú Park Punta Cana is set to close its doors. A statement released on Thursday morning assures that while the commercial stores and restaurant will continue to operate, the theme park itself will be shutting down immediately. The post, shared on the official website and social media channels, mentions that they are now considering the “future use of the property.”


In expressing gratitude, the statement extends thanks to all the customers who have enjoyed the park over the past year. For further details, interested parties are encouraged to contact

Katmandú Park Punta Cana, inaugurated in February 2023 in an event led by the President of the Republic, Luis Abinader, was backed by an investment exceeding $60 million, as reported at the time. The theme park showcased groundbreaking rides and attractions, offering guests a unique experience in The Hidden Realms of Kathmandu, the company’s original and proprietary franchise.

a team park not for the Dominicans, cannot survive just for tourists with high entry’s prices

Sadly I saw this coming. Too pricey and I feel the park itself needed more attractions.

The tourists would like to venture out, BUT there is no security for the tourist to go outside hotels.
Politur is not well trained to have basic communication in English and complains are ignored.
Crime against tourists are too common and dominican laws are not followed and implemented.
The victim has to make multiple appearances and the public ministry does not take over the case….the victim is made a fool by the the police.

It’s symptomatic of the all Inclusive model. The people in these “luxury Gulags” have prepaid for everything provided inside and there is little or no incentive, quite the reverse, to pay extra to venture outside either to eat or for amusement.

if that was true why Katmandu park did not pre-sold tickets to tourist as part of their vacation package? because thats not what the issue was. the park was expensive for locals and basically anything that does not provide services to locals fails, why? bacause locals are a consistent group of clients year round while tourist are ciclical and sesonal. investors need to find the happy medium. they pay low taxes and low salaries there is no need to charge outraguious prices unless they just want to make a quick buck and risk failure.

The tourist does not have protection outside of the all inclusive

The park itself is in a very safe area, it’s located just a short distance from the all-inclusive hotels.
