You have to visit the place. Preferably by night. Lots of fountains (but lots of people too), projections over the water, a water tunnel, and many beautiful views. You can spend 1 hour at this place and it is very cheap ($1,3 USD per person).

We visited this water park on our last evening in Peru. Our flight did not leave until midnight, so we needed something to fill our evening. The fountains were very pretty and the kids had fun trying to negotiate one where the height of the water changes constantly. Be sure to go on a warm evening - it was a... More

This is a good attraction and I highly recommend you visit at night. There is a a big and round water fountain and people go inside, get wet, and then change at the locker rooms. If you are visiting during the summer, bring a change of clothes if you plan to get in the fountain. It was a bit hard... More

We went during the day, but it's supposed to be even better at night when they add music and lights. But I definitely enjoyed our walk throught the park, there's a lot of fountains and some are interactive. You can walk through a water tunnel or kids can play in the water park too. Worth the visit any time of... More

A delight for young and old, these fountains are magical and a sight not to be missed when in Peru. Be sure to get positioned to see the show where the sprays of water are used as a screen for images and video. Families are out in force, even late on a Sunday night. And a you can actually get...

Beautiful park with beautiful fountains enhanced with multicolored light displays. The best part was watching the people taking such joy in being there. Not to be missed if you have a free night in Lima. We went on a Sunday and the park was filled with families just enjoying the beautiful atmosphere.

Great evening sight. The fountains are beautiful and if you have kids they will have a blast. But go even if you don't just to see all the Peruvian kids running and playing. Really nice.

I went to the Park not expecting much, but what we found yhere was an amazing and beautiful show. Even though, only one of the fountains offers a video/music coordinated perfomance, it is very fun to watch all the other different fountains as well. Tip: Bring a change of clothes as you might end up wanting to join the kids... More

The Magic Water Circuit was one of my favourite ever evenings out. I seemed to be the sole traveller amongst local families and clinging couples, enjoying the wonderful sights and sounds. One of the delights was witnessing so much happiness and goodwill. It was moving to be part of a communal experience of joy and play, with and around the... More

Arrive early to visit the park with many different fountains. Bring a change of cloth if you feel adventurous enough to jump in the interactive fountain or pass under the water tunnel. There are changing rooms available on site. Best visited at night to enjoy the musical laser show
