Located within the Parque de la Reserva (Park of the Reserve) south of the Museo de Arte de Lima and next to the Estación Estadio Nacional, this water light show is fun for families and kids of all ages.

Rivalling the fountains at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, the Circuito Magico del Agua combines 13 automated lasers with music to create a spectacular light show. The show chronicles the history of Peru with 3-D movies projected into the water fountains and laser displays.

Locals and travelers alike continue to be in awe of the colorful display and highly recommend bringing along a bathing suit so you can get close to the action (some of the fountains are interactive).

While it's free to enjoy the park during the day, the light show costs 4 sol (about $1.20) to watch (free to children ages 4 and younger and senior citizens older than 65). Catch the show Tuesday through Sunday nights (no show on Mondays) at 7:15, 8:15 and 9:30 p.m.

#1 Plaza de Armas (Plaza Mayor)

Known as the birthplace of Lima, the Plaza de Armas (also known as Plaza Mayor) functioned as the heart of the Spanish colony dating back to 1535. Travelers say it's a must-see for every first-time visitor to Lima.

Located in the historic center of Lima, this main square is full of photo ops. Although none of the original structures stand, the current architecture is still photo-worthy. You won't be able to miss the bright yellow Municipal Palace, as well as the bronze fountain that dates back to the early 1650s.
