It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Jordan

Peak Season: March to May; September to November

Amman is ideal during spring and fall when temperatures average in the 60s. Petra and Wadi Rum are best explored during mid-spring, however evenings at that time can still get very cold.

Off-Season: June to August

Avoid any outdoor sightseeing during the summer months, particularly in Petra and Wadi Rum, as temperatures can be sweltering. Even though it’s located on a hilltop, summers in Amman can also be scorching and unpleasant.

Sweet Spot: January to March

Even though the winter months bring cold weather to Jordan, outdoor sightseeing is still more comfortable during these times than the scorching summer months. The Red Sea and Aqaba, in particular, are worth visiting during this period.
