About AQABA & TALA BAY HOLIDAYS
With its wealth of other attractions, Jordan’s splendid Red Sea resort is a great base from which to explore the places of interest in southern Jordan. Many feel Aqaba’s greatest asset is the Red Sea itself, where you can experience some of the best snorkelling and diving in the world. The temperate climate and gentle water currents have created a perfect environment for the growth of corals and a teeming plethora of marine life. Here you can swim with friendly sea turtles and dolphins as they dart amongst the schools of brightly coloured fish.

When To Go
Jordan has a diverse Middle Eastern Climate with hot summers. Although travel is possible throughout the year, not all months are the best time to travel. Spring is more ideal to travel as temperatures are not too high reaching into high twenties during the day with cool nights. Winter can sometimes be harsh as desert regions can experience short rainfalls and cold nights and even in Petra sometimes snow.
Petra Day Trip
Morning transfer to Petra for a full day visit of the city. The visit of the ancient Nabatean capital starts on horseback, followed by a walk through the Siq. The tour then proceeds to gradually unfold the mysteries of the rose-red city with its spectacular treasury, Royal Tombs, burial chambers and high places of sacrifice.
Transfer to the enchanting desert of Wadi Rum, Jordan’s largest desert and one of the most spectacular desert landscapes in the world. A full day Jeep tour inside the Wadi until sunset. Watch the most beautiful view whilst drinking a cup of traditional Bedouin tea.
With no city lights to dim the night sky, blow out the candles and take in the breathtaking stars. You will see numerous constellations including the Milky Way. Shooting stars and satellites are not uncommon. If you are lucky enough to visit during July or August you will witness the annual meteor shower with 60 meteors visible per hour.
