Which desert climate would you prefer?

A) The cloudy desert with a marine influence: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lima#Climate

or

B) The sunny desert with a more stereotypical desert climate: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuma,_Arizona#Climate

Yuma is too hot. At least Lima has mild temps and sea breezes which keeps the air fresher.

Both are a C for me. Arequipa is way better than Lima, as Arequipa has the mild temps and dry weather but without the nasty fog Lima has.

I've heard that Lima's true sunshine hours is in the 1400s and the airport is in an exceptionally cloudy part of Lima directly on the coast. Also, I think being slightly more inland in the downtown area would result in slightly warmer summers, as the cold ocean current is what's really keeping Lima from obtaining tropical lowland temperatures. Plus, Lima's stats are 1961-1990. In that case I'd give the edge to Lima. If it were just these stats then it's a harder choice.

Both are terrible imo but Lima wins for me cause of my hatred for hot sunny weather.

Yuma: 7.7% / Z
Lima: -9.1% / Z-

Yuma is a desiccated, photokeratitis-inducing, broiling hot 4 months of the year, winter-less nightmare of a climate. Yet compared to Lima, it's paradise.

Lima is literally among the worst climates of the world. It's a pure garbage climate and there's nothing good I can say about it. At least Yuma has seasons and a few inches of rain per year.
