Jordan's only coastal and port city, Aqaba offers a wide range of water-related activities offshore to accompany its mix of historic buildings back on land.
Aqaba is known for adventure, wildlife, outdoors, beaches, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at City Beach, head outdoors with Berenice Beach Club, and kick back and relax at South Beach.

New York City, USA to Aqaba is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from New York City to Aqaba due to the time zone difference. Traveling from New York City in December, you will find days in Aqaba are warmer (74°F), and nights are somewhat warmer (54°F). Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sun) early enough to drive to Wadi Rum.
