My family of 5 took a taxi from Miraflores (15 minute trip) to here. We arrived at 8:30 and spent an hour walking around and checking out all the different fountains. We went to the 9:30 show which we enjoyed but we mostly loved just walking through the park and hanging out. We didn't see any other tourists so we... More

If you go to Lima, you must go to The Magic Water Circuit. This is the only way to understand the beauty of the place. Even during the day or in the night, is awesome the water, music and the complete picture developed in the middle of Lima.

If you are visiting Lima, you must see this light show. It is spectacular and lovely. Then check out the fountains, they are amazing. There is tunnel of water which you walk through and another which you can walk in the middle of the fountain and dont get wet.

I loved my experience here! I lived in Lima for about 3 months, and this was one of the first things I did during my stay there. I would definitely recommend going on a warm evening and wearing clothes that are somewhat water resistant, because if you really want to experience it, you may get wet! There is a little... More

Before entering the park, there were lines. But the wait was not that long for us - 10min or so. The entrance fee is 4 PS for an adult. The water circuit itself was great. In order to fully appreciate the lights and colors, I'd recommend going there after it's dark. Our favorite part was the round "playground" fountain that... More

Love all of the different fountains and attractions within the magic water circuit. Great for all ages, but especially for kids during the warm months. Definitely go once it is completely dark to really appreciate all of the colored lights

We waited in line almost 15 minutes for this -- I felt like a local since we seemed to be the only tourists there. It was well worth the small admission fee.

You cannot visit Lima without visiting the wonderful public park which says a lot about the advancement of the city. The incredibles "Fuentes de Agua" have nothing to envy to the Las Vegas show or any shows anywhere in the world. There were many, so this could be for a good afternoon with the family. Make sure that you stay... More

We entered the park before the fountains were lit (around 5:30pm), but it was well worth wandering for an hour throughout (to take photos) and then seeing the lights come on at 6:30pm. There were places to buy drinks and food, too. We also waited to see the show at 7:15pm. Quite an eclectic set of music, overall very enjoyable.

Exceptional water park...visit after dark (safe, lots of people and taxis right outside gate). If you have kids, there is a fountain they can walk in, so bring a swimsuit for them, changing available onsite.
