Spring and autumn are the best times to travel to Jordan as the days are warm, with temperatures into the high 20°Cs, but nights are cool. Exploring the sites in this climate is pleasant, it is not too hot for hiking in the nature reserves and both flora and fauna are abundant. The summer months here are very hot, with temperatures reaching up into the 40°Cs. However, if you are not adversely affected by heat it is still worth considering a trip at this time as you will have sites like Petra almost to yourself. In the winter months, Jordan often experiences snow and the nights get cold; especially in the desert regions. Winter is also when the majority of the rain falls, but showers tend to be short and sharp.

Summer is often stiflingly hot and the winter unpredictable; you can even see snow in the Wadi Rum in March. For me, spring strikes the perfect balance, as the climate is ideal for sightseeing and enjoying some much craved sunshine. This is also the best time to visit the country's nature reserves.
