Security is one of the points that most worries tourists from all over the world, since Jordan became one of the most active enclaves of the Arab Spring of 2011. Currently, it has a great commitment to security and a strong investment in tourism, so it is very common for you to see a lot of security force in tourist hotels, metal detectors in hotels, tourist police in key places and controls in border areas. Put responsible tourism into practice, taking into account that it is a Muslim country, totally safe and in which the king is highly regarded by society.
The best time to go
In Jordan there are four seasons very differentiated from each other, with winter and spring especially short and with a very hot, long and very dry summer.

An economic country
Jordan is a particularly economic country, perfect to enjoy its cuisine and its local products. The official currency is the dinar (JOD), which is not necessary to change beforehand, since there are many ATMs and exchange houses where you can take money from your currency. A usual lunch or dinner has a price of 13 dinars, in addition, the alcoholic beverage is prohibited unless you consume it in special places for tourists.
Petra and the Siq Gorge

One of the most popular and beloved places in the whole country is the Dead Sea, located 430 meters below sea level, between Jordan, Israel and the Palestinian Territories.
