The Magic Water Tour of Lima — With Video!


El Circuito Mágico del Agua

In an upscale Lima neighborhood lies a park of immense beauty that sports a nightly cascading show of fountains, lights, music, and laser projection.  So, in addition to today’s photo-essay, I’ll be giving you the added treat of a video of the park and it’s nightly fountain-and-light show.  That video will be at the end of today’s blog post.

The fountains are interactive, in that visitors can walk beneath the arched jets of a water “tunnel,” or stand amidst multi-colored columns of water that jut upward from the ground.  You’ll see what I mean in the aforementioned video.

The park is a big draw with the locals and incredibly busy even though this visit was on a Wednesday evening.  We even ran across a couple who chose this venue for their wedding.

And then there is that beautiful crescendo of colorful lights playing against the fountains.

After cruising around the park be prepared for the nightly laser show using fountains of water as a cinematic screen.  The show runs for approximately two hours.
