5. Some people believe Nazca Lines were made by aliens. It sounds interesting, but what if the aliens decide to come back and they take you away? Too risky.

7. A country by the Pacific ocean that has mountains, deserts and a jungle? No, there is no place on Earth with such diversity!

8. You’d love to witness something like this, but who could guarantee you that bright green won’t hurt your precious eyes?

9. Cruising down the Amazon sounds OK, but you were so looking forward to doing something really exciting.

10. And what if you get so used to relaxing in a hammock that you don’t remember what stress is when you get home?

11. Peru’s wildlife is incredible. But you don’t see the point in watching it live when you can watch a documentary on Netflix.

12. Machu Picchu? You’ve seen so many pictures of it already you don’t think it’s worth it to walk there.

13. Thinking about the more of 4,000 varieties of potatoes that grow in Peru is tiring…After all, Mc. Donald’s French fries are the only potatoes you care for.

18. Titicaca Lake is the highest navigable lake in the world, so the idea of going there sounds interesting. But you were looking for a place with rich culture and beautiful landscapes and you’re not sure Titicaca has them…

19. And what about if you have a close encounter with this gigantic frog, the most famous amphibian of Titicaca, and it asks you for a kiss?

20. Although it’s also possible you’ll find a rare specimen of this Andean flamingo…and you’re afraid you won’t be fast enough to take a photo of it!

21. Snowy peaks? You saw one and you’ve seen them all…

22. Archeology is for archeologists and you don’t think you’ll be able to learn anything from these randomly spread rocks…
