El Mariel is the second studio album from Cuban-American rapper Pitbull. It features production from Lil Jon, Diaz Brothers, DJ Khaled, Mr. Collipark, The Neptunes and Jim Jonsin. It includes guest appearances from Lil Jon, Twista and Trick Daddy. A Spanish language version of the album was released on October 31, 2006 featuring the three singles from El Mariel, along with twelve Spanish-only tracks. The album leaked onto the internet on October 27, 2006.

The Miami-based rapper has collaborated with a who's who of hip-hop and reggaeton artists, including Lil Jon, Ying Yang Twins, Orishas, Daddy Yankee, Twista and Rick Ross. Pitbull’s recent speaking appearance at the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) “Tres Crossovers” panel nearly stole the show, with Billboard homing in on Pitbull's self identification as a successful rapper who also happens to be Latin. Unlike many other Latino rappers, Pitbull has managed to achieve success in the mainstream hip-hop world with bilingual lyrics and potent beats laced with reggaeton.

El Mariel debuted on the Billboard 200 at number 17, selling 48,000 copies that week;[1] this was also the album's peak on the chart.[2] The album has so far sold a total of 189,499 copies.[3]
