The US portal, Matador Network, published the ’24 reasons to never travel to Peru ‘. After reading them, the Internet users – no doubt – will start preparing the backpack.
The American, digital and independent travel publication Matador Network published a list called ’24 reasons you should never travel to Peru ‘, in which ironically highlights the natural, historical and gastronomic benefits of our country and warns its readers never to come to Peru because “they are going to fall in love,” reported the Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, Magali Silva.
The President of the Directing Council of PROMPERÚ commented that the mentioned publication highlights, through photographs taken from the social media network Instagram, Peruvian cuisine, landscapes such as the Sacred Valley of the Incas, the beaches of Paracas, the beauty of the Amazon jungle and our general biodiversity.
“In an ironic tone and using reverse psychology, you are invited to ‘not come to Peru‘ because otherwise you will fall in love with it’. It is indicated, for example, that after witnessing the spectacular valley of Colca your eyes could be damaged or, after eating in Lima, you will not be able to tolerate the food of your country of origin”, he said.
The publication, which also includes tourist destinations such as Lake Titicaca, the archaeological site of Ollantaytambo, the Cerro Blanco dune in Ica, the Nasca Lines and the Huayhuash Mountain Range, concludes by way of advice that “if you do not you want to fall in love with Peru, you better never come. ”
- “Going to Lima to enjoy one of the best gastronomies in the world seems a bit dangerous … What if your palate gets used to food and you can not even stand the smell of the dishes in your country?
- “Your idea of the perfect vacation is to do nothing and just enjoy the beach … but you are afraid that there will not be any in Peru.”
- “Practice ‘sandboarding’ on the highest dunes in the world? It’s too much for your taste. “
- “You want to enjoy masterful landscapes and Peru is full of these. But you doubt that you are ready for this level of inspiration. “
- “Some people believe that the Nasca Lines were made by aliens. Sounds interesting, but what if the aliens decide to come back and take you with them. Very risky.”
- “Can you tell me that these types of animals walk freely (they show the image of an alpaca)? Spooky.”
- “A country near the Pacific Ocean that has mountains, desert and jungle? There is no place on the planet with such diversity. “
- “You would love to witness something like this (shows a beautiful landscape) but who can guarantee you that green will not hurt your precious eyes.”
- “Surfing the Amazon sounds good, but you were hoping to do something ‘really’ exciting.”
- “What if you get used to relaxing in a hammock so much that you do not remember what stress is at home?”
- “The wild life in Peru is incredible. But you do not know why you have to watch it live instead of watching a documentary on Netflix. “
- “Machu Picchu? You’ve seen many photos of the monument that you do not think it’s important to walk there anymore. “
- “Thinking about the more than 4000 varieties of potatoes that grow in Peru tires … after all the potato chips at Mc. Donald’s are the only ones you care about.
- “And you are sure that Lima is gray and has no color.”
- “You worry that Peruvian culture is not varied enough.”
- “Or not so old.”
- “What memories would you buy to take you home?”
- “Lake Titicaca is the highest to navigate the world, so the idea of going sounds interesting. But you were looking for a place with great culture and beautiful landscapes and you are not sure if Titicaca has that. “
- “And what about those close encounters with giant frogs, the lake’s most famous amphibian. What if they ask you for a kiss? “
- “Although it is possible that you find a rare specimen of the Andean flamingo … you are afraid that it will go so fast that you will not be able to take photos”.
- “Hills with snow? You’ve seen one and you’ve seen them all. “
- “Archeology is for archaeologists and you do not think you’re going to be able to learn anything about these ‘rock formations.'”
- “You have been told that Peruvians are the most friendly people in the world. What happens if you make many friends that you have to return each year? “
- “Friend, follow my advice. If you do not want to fall in love with Peru, never come. “
