Jordan has a hot, dry climate characterized by long, hot, dry summers and short, cool winters. The climate is influenced by Jordan’s location between the subtropical aridity of the Arabian desert areas and the subtropical humidity of the eastern Mediterranean area. January is the coldest month, with temperatures from 5°C to 10°C, and August is the hottest month at 20°C to 35°C. Daily temperatures can be very hot, especially in the summer; on some days it can be 40°C or more, especially when the Shirocco, a hot, dry southerly wind blows. These winds can sometimes be very strong and can cause Sandstorms. Because of this, it is very important to stay hydrated when you visit Jordan, especially if you plan on going on adventures to some of Jordan’s many wadis. We recommend bringing a reusable bottle with you.
Arabic is the official language of Jordan, but in most tourist places people understand and speak some English. Hospitality is a very important part of Jordanian culture, because of this people will be helpful when you need assistance.
Laundry service is usually available at larger hotels. However, remember to check the hotel’s individual laundry return policy and pricing schedule before choosing to have laundry done at a hotel. It is also suggested that you request laundry service only when you have a sufficient length of stay remaining to ensure that your laundry is to you before depart.
In Jordan electricity runs 220/240 volts. If you do bring electrical appliances, take along international converter kit complete with a set of adapter plug.
Although smoking can be seen in most places in the country, we ask that you refrain from smoking while in sightseeing vehicles.
