Weather in Aqaba in December
Generally, the weather in Aqaba in December is essentially the same, as in neighboring Egypt. Water 23-24 degrees, air 20-25 during the day and around 15 at night. The climate of Aqaba is formed by the Red Sea, which does not cool down even in winter (the water in it never goes lower 20 degrees even in February) and covering mountains from the mainland. Therefore, you can swim and dive there all year round., although the air in the winter months is cool and the constantly blowing piercing north wind somewhat darkens the winter red sea diving. Well, for those who want to just sunbathe - the very thing! Climate becomes more severe with distance from the sea. The air at night in the desert cools to zero, and in the mountains in winter there are negative temperatures and, even, snow may fall. This is definitely worth considering., planning trips to Petra or the Wadi Rum desert during the winter months. Truly warm clothes are absolutely essential.. :bandit:
Kind of 3 countries: Egypt, Israel, Jordan
It is worth admitting, что цены на продукты и напитки в Иордании достаточно велики. Обед в ресторане обойдется приблизительно в 25 — 35$ на одного. In order to economize, следует пойти в KFC или Макдональдс, тут вы потратите 4-8$. В курортных зонах в кафе, ресторанах и отелях дополнительно к услугам взимается налог в размере 13% (Aqaba) and 16% (The Dead Sea).
По внутренним правилам заселение в отеле производится с 15:00. То есть если вы отдыхаете с детьми, you should take care of your nutrition in advance, так как первая услуга оказанная в отеле при системах питания HВ FB ALL будет ужин. Последняя услуга — завтрак, since the eviction takes place after 11:00. Не стоит уповать не доброту хотельеров, как например в Турции, где туристам сразу же спокойно разрешают идти в ресторан даже при прибытии в отель рано утром. В Иордании, несмотря на доброту местных жителей, в отелях действуют строгие правила касательно питания.
Дополнительное размещение в Иордании в большинстве отелей платное. There are no clamshells anywhere. Место на третьего человека обычно это либо тахта, a fold-out sofa or a full-fledged one and a half bed.
Так же стоит учитывать особенность концепции питания: если вы бронируйте All, нужно внимательно изучить что входит в эту систему, since there may well be "soft ALL", подразумевающий один напиток алкогольный или безалкогольный во время каждого приема пищи. Основные типы питания в стране: BB, HB, FB, FB+ и ALL.
Полотенца есть во всех пляжных отелях. В городских их может не быть, но городские отели пользуются пляжем Беренис бич — там полотенца входят в стоимость посещения пляжа.
Не спешите радовать себя покупками алкогольных напитков в дьюти фри, так как при заселении в отель ваш багаж будут досматривать через сканер или обыскивать вручную. Распитие в отелях напитков купленных за территориями отелей часто запрещено. Если вы хотите пронести на территорию отеля свои алкогольные покупки, то с вас потребуют оплату 28-40 динаров за 1 liter (в зависимости от условий отеля). При отказе оплаты ваши покупки забирают и выдают в целости и сохранности на выезде из отеля.
Курить в самом городе практически везде разрешено. Сигареты лучше привозить с собой, так как в Иордании они стоят в 3 раза дороже.
Сушилок на балконе нет ни в одном отеле Иордании, даже по запросу!
Сейфы во всех отелях любой звездности, если они есть в наличии, provided free of charge.
