One day tour from Aqaba to wadi rum and back from wadi rum to Aqaba in the afternoon
Aqaba, located in southwestern Jordan near the Israeli, Egyptian, and Saudi Arabian borders, is a favorite destination for both Jordanians and foreigners seeking to escape the cold winter weather. Sitting on the Gulf of Aqaba, not far from Egypt, the resort town enjoys balmy weather during the winter months, with temperatures seldom dipping below 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21C). Aqaba has been popular with beach-goers for quite a few years, but it is now attracting divers and snorkelers as well. Underwater sights include over 1,000 species of fish, and countless varieties of fringing and fan corals, sea grasses, sponges, invertebrates, and other forms of marine life.
