Coliseo de Puerto Rico


The Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot is the biggest indoor arena in Puerto Rico dedicated to entertainment. It is located in San Juan, the island capital at the heart of the financial district also known as the Golden Mile. It is usually referred by Puerto Ricans as the Choliseo, which is a combination of the words “Coliseo” and “Cholito”, in reference to Don Cholito, one of José Miguel Agrelot’s characters and Agrelot’s own adopted nickname. José Miguel Agrelot was a beloved Puerto Rican comedian, radio and television host.

Construction began in July 1998 with the purpose of obtaining the 2004 Olympic Games for Puerto Rico.

Coliseo de Puerto Rico can be configured in at least six different forms with capacities from 2,400 to 18,500 spectators: Theatre, ¼ House, ½ House, ¾ House, End stage, Center stage.

The Coliseo has an area of 5.2 acres and it is embedded in a property of 10.7 acres. These measurements include the landscaping design created to balance the development of the exterior with the architectural elements of the building. This allows the recreational usage of the outdoor areas contributing to make the “Golden Mile” a more attractive sector. 

The Coliseo had a total final investment of $252.6 million.

The venue generates approximately 300 to 509 jobs per event.
