27 Reasons Why Perú Is 100% Overrated

    Definitely not worth the trip. Nope.

    1. Some people think Perú is beautiful.

    2. But they are obviously sadly mistaken.

    3. This crystal clear lake creviced between mountains? Mediocre at best.

    4. Architecture that looks like something out of a fairy tale? Psh, please.

    5. The fresh ceviche...overrated.

    6. The lomo saltado? Yeah, that doesn't look appetizing at all.

    7. Who even wants to visit a desert oasis?

    8. Not this llama. Nope.

    9. And this alpaca? Yeah, not him either.

    10. The sunsets in Lima are nothing special.

    11. And a park filled with adoptable cats is nothing to be proud of.

    12. Rainbow Mountain? I've seen better.

    13. The ancient, unexplained Nazca lines? Meh.

    14. And Colca Canyon looks nothing like a desktop background. Definitely not.

    15. The coast of Lima is whatever.

    16. And this coast? It's fine.

    17. The history of the Incas isn't fascinating in the least.

    18. And speaking of Sacred Valley, why would you want to spend the night there, amongst the stars?

    19. Arequipa is nothing to brag about.

    20. And Lake Titicaca is not interesting. Not one bit.

    21. Moray? More like bore-ay.

    22. Mancora doesn't even look relaxing.

    23. And Lake Paron? The water isn't even that turquoise.

    24. Sure, Perú has the Amazon, but it's not all that.

    25. Who even likes waterfalls like this?

    26. Hot springs in Aguas Calientes? Not that great a view.

    27. And Machu Picchu? Definitely not the coolest site you'll ever see. Why even bother going to Perú?
