Juana Rosario Arrendel (born 16 June 1978 in La Romana) is a female high jumper from the Dominican Republic.

Arrendel originally won the 1999 Pan American Games in Winnipeg, but lost the gold medal after testing positive for stanozolol.[1] In 2006, she became the sixth woman to win three Central American and Caribbean Games titles in a row. The other are Miguelina Cobián, Carmen Romero, Bárbara Hechevarría, María Caridad Colón and Letitia Vriesde.[2]

Her personal best jump is 1.97 metres, achieved in December 2002 at the Central American and Caribbean Games in San Salvador. This is the current Dominican Republic record.[3]
