Personally, I found that WooCommerce has very good performance, when web hosting is good AND the website is correctly set up. Prestashop is a lot more slow.

You may did something wrong on your cache plugin, or some plugins may decrease website performance ... I will suggest you first to diagnose load time of each part of your website, using Query Monitor plugin. Then you'll know where to check next.

I'm pretty sure your high loading time is not linked to WooCommerce, or is due to bad WooCommerce configuration.

You can use one of the many cache plugins available for WordPress; my personal preference is https://wordpress.org/plugins/w3-total-cache/. , you must configure your plugin correctly and update your WordPress script as well as any old plugins, Your website may be slow if you use large graphics; you may verify it using GTMetrix or Google Page Speed.

There are really too many variables to answer from just this information.

How many products, with how many configuration options, are there multiple large product images, what other plugins is the site using apart from WooCommerce, etc.

Caching is not a fix-all, if the site is well set up and performs well then caching will improve that even more, if there is a bigger underlying problem then caching isn't going to save you. That is especially true with an e-commerce site where lots of things actually can't / shouldn't be cached.

Having said that, not all WP cache plugins are created equal, and everyone is going to have an opinion about which one you should or shouldn't use. Somebody already recommended w3-total-cache which personally I would avoid, I'd recommend swift for nginx or apache servers, or LiteSpeed cache on LiteSpeed servers.
