I am glad that I was able to go to this water show!!! It was entertaining. They have several shows and I went to the last one, probably the one with less crowds. The park is big, so bring your walking shoes. There is some history that you can learn about Peru thru the park at the same time that... More

Visited early October in the early evening as the transition from day to night was happening. Very much enjoyed the display and it was something different for me visiting a city. Relaxed atmosphere with people enjoying a walk or sitting down on a bench to have a conversation. Good way to finish off a day of sightseeing in Lima before... More

Beautiful water fountain park, best in South America. Multitude of different fountains with ever changing shapes of water flow, including music and clored light effects after dark. Interactive features at some of the fountains are particularly entertaining on hot afternoons.

Spent a month in Peru with the family and this was one of our last things to see with the kids. We have seen it before but we knew they will love it...and the sure did. Fun place but spectacular at the same time.

This place was so amazing. And it's really unique, I've never seen anything like this. It's basically a park full of fountains and water features, but the water features are so interactive. It has gorgeous water features that you can walk through, and huge fountains that are continually changing their water patterns, and the architecture is also amazing. The park... More

This is probably the best waterworks park in South America. Ask for the schedule of the main presentation, which projects a video with traditions of Peru over a water wall. There is a main park and a tunnel that connects to a second one. Food is not that good (only fast-food), so better you go between meals or after dinner.... More

I went with my mother after new year and are always updating the attractions. If you go with children is ideal in summer it can get wet and play hard. When I went with a girlfriend had a locker room to change clothes and go almost to dry in an area where the water came out of the ground randomly.... More

We did this because we thought the kids would love it. It was OK. They have a pretty cheesy light show (that really has nothing to do with the water at all - but it is a laser light show superimposed over water) There were also fountains that people could run in and get wet (thought at night when it's...
