Circuito Magico Del Agua
#1 of 129 Sights & Landmarks in Lima
Located in a large park with a number of diverse fountains; the flagship show is 20+ minutes of photos of enchanting Peru sights swimming between the colored jets with Peruvian musical accompaniment.
A must see - we took a guided tour though the park as a part of a Lima Night Tour and view the lovely fountains along the way, leading to the main show which is stunning.

We loved this promenade in Lima, definitely well-worth visiting, whether you are staying in Miraflores, Barranco, San Isidro, Magdalena, etc. Great views, relaxing, restaurants and shopping.
The walking path is broad and comfortable, but most importantly, it offers great views over the beach and the ocean, as well as excellent opportunities to enjoy people living their lives to the fullest.
