Day 4: Aqaba
Jordan is often referred to as a window to the sea, and Aqaba certainly brings some breezy refreshment after spending time in the hot pink desert! The sandy beaches and coral reefs around Aqaba are the most pristine on the Red Sea, and the Jordanians are continually working to preserve it. Enjoy a leisurely boat ride and a short swim out to the coral reef. Unusual vertical currents and a refreshing sea breeze make diving in the heat of summer a cool and pleasant experience. You can also go snorkeling, fishing, and sailing. Or if you like, take a trip in a glass bottomed boat. (B)

Enjoy the sun, then head to the Dead Sea for a refreshing dip. If you're not a confident swimmer, don't worry! You're not going to sink! The high salinity and minerals prevent this and moisturize the skin. Treat yourself to a relaxing massage, or try the well-known healing powers of the minerals from the sea and its muddy bottom.
