Magic Water Circuit

Parque de la Reserva, Lima

The Basics

The world’s largest fountain complex, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the Magic Water Circuit is a spectacle to behold. Some of the water features are interactive—you may get a light misting—making it a hit with kids and adults alike. The Maze of the Dream (Laberinto del Ensueno) invites visitors to follow a labyrinth of vertical walls of water to an inner circle. Fountain of Harmony (Fuente de la Armonía) is a pyramid with sides formed by jets of water and Magic Fountain (Fuente Mágica) is the park’s most powerful fountain, with a jet shooting a stream of water 262 feet (80 meters) into the air.

Travelers have many options for exploring the Magic Water Circuit. Private and group tours may be combined with visits to other Lima attractions, including Larco Museum, with its important pre-Colombian art collection, and the nearby pre-Inca archaeological site at Pachacámac.

Fun Night
I had heard that the Larco Museum and the Magic water circuit were two things I should see in Lima. This tour was a perfect way to see them both. The tour even included a stop for a Pisco sour and a traditional sandwich at one of the oldest bars in Lima.

Learning the history of Lima and Peru while walking was fun. Sharing dinner with other tourists allowed us all to sit and talk about what we had learned and seen. The grand finale was the Magic Water entertainment.

Lima: Water Magic Circuit, Historic Downtown & Catacombs Night Tour
A very nice tour of Lima. Simple but well executed, it allows you to take in a lot of what Lima has to offer in a short space of time. The catacombs and the magic water show are great experiences. Italo our tour guide spoke good English, and was very thorough and easy to get along with. Definitely recommend.

Magic Water Circuit with Dinner and Folkloric Show
Water circuit show was very neat. Tour guide was nice but felt very rushed and spoke very quickly at the water circuit. Tour guide then leaves you and does not take to you dinner and folkloric show. Make sure that someone in your group is very fluent in Spanish bc even if you picked and English tour guide, you will be left with a driver that does not speak Spanish for half the night.

Magic Water & Lasers Dance Show Including Hotel Pick-Up
The show was nothing like I expected. It was a movie shown on the water shooting up from the fountain.

Lima Full-Day Experience: Pachacamac, Historic Downtown and Magic Water Circuit
We enjoyed the entire tour! It was cool exploring different neighborhoods in Lima. We definitely got more out of Pachacamac by being on a tour. The San Francisco catacombs were a highlight as well as ending with the fountain show.

Lima in a Day: City Sightseeing Tour, Larco Museum and Magic Water Circuit
Ursula is very knowledgeable about Peru’s history. I got to sample all Peru’s dishes, appetizers, desserts with Pisco during lunch in one of their best restaurants. To top it a drink in a bar with a big Peruvian sandwich and Pisco again late afternoon before going to the magic water circuit. Highly recommended tour!!!
