Despite some substantial skepticism and doubt, The Magic Water Circuit turned out to be one of my favorite memories of my time spent in Lima.

As a photographer, the photos were absolutely magnificent and went way beyond my initial expectations.

Throughout my travels in the past I have visited a variety of water shows and in the end was left quite disappointed.

From the water light shows of Disney World in Florida to the water light shows at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, none had exactly left the right impression.

However, for some inexplicable reason, The Magic Water Circuit in Lima Peru just hit different and was unexpectedly one of the highlights of my trip.

The Magic Water Circuit in Lima features 13 different illuminated fountains, each with their own uniquely mesmerizing water display.

Presenting a kaleidoscopic range of colors, every new water fountain continues to impress, as you eagerly continue along to next one eventually making your way through the entire circuit.

Additionally, some the fountains even feature interactive games where one wrong step will have you leaving the park completely drenched in your mistakes.

Riddled with children and lighthearted adults, these games provide quite the adrenaline rush as you desperately try to avoid the inevitable splash.

How To Get To The Magic Water Circuit in Lima?

The best way to get to the Lima water show is to simply take a cab or an Uber.

Located around a 12-minute drive from Parque Kennedy in Miraflores, the cab fare should be no more than 8 PEN.

Though there is the option to take public transportation, considering the exceptionally affordable cab fare… why would you?

However, depending on whether the cab driver speaks English or not he may not know what you are talking about when you ask him to take you to The Magic Water Circuit.

Therefore, to help prevent any potential confusion just ask him to take you to Lima’s Circuito Mágico del Agua.
