This depends on the type of holiday you wish to experience as well as your preferred climate and temperature.
Typically, most travellers find that spring and autumn are the ideal times of year to embark on a trip to Jordan. The months of March to May offer warm days and cooler evenings, making this a perfect time for adventure holidays that include cycling, trekking, and sight-seeing. If you want to avoid any late seasonal rainfall, it’s recommended to travel closer to April or May.
However, spring also marks the arrival of the khamseen, a hot, dry wind that creates sand storms and envelops the land in sand for a short period of time. This can also cause temperatures to rapidly increase. Although it can last for 50 days across some countries in the Middle East, Jordan usually only experiences this phenomenon for a few days.
September and October also offer a comfortable climate for trips to Jordan with temperatures cooling off after the dizzying heights of summer, where they often reach 40 degrees.
Popular locations, such as Petra, often become busier during spring and autumn. So, if you want to avoid the height of the tourist season, and don’t mind braving the slightly cooler conditions, the start of November is a great alternative.
It’s also worth noting that Ramadan (usually late March-April) can sometimes cause minor disruptions to the local routine.
