Insider's View

Try to get up as early as possible for your Petra sightseeing - there won't be nearly as many people, it'll be cooler and the sunlight is beautiful.

Location & Directions

Petra, Jordan

The Mövenpick Resort Petra is located directly at the entrance to the historic city of Petra. Petra lies about 3.5 hours south of modern Amman, about 2 hours north of Aqaba, on the edge of the mountainous desert of the Wadi Araba.

When to go

For a small country, Jordan has an extraordinary range of climates. The best time to visit climate-wise is in spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), when the daytime temperatures aren't too extreme. April is probably the best month, when temperatures are warm and wildflowers are in bloom. March can be cold and rainy in the north but is balmy by the Gulf of Aqaba and the Dead Sea.
