Weather will be pleasant overall, but can be unpredictable and on the hotter side in May. In Amman, the average Fahrenheit temperatures are 80+/- degrees during the day and in the 60’s at night. It will be warmer at the Dead Sea and in the Jordan Valley as well as in Aqaba on the Red Sea. Bring a light jacket for layering in the evenings. Please check the 10-day forecast before your departure.

Mosquitos can be a nuisance this time of year at the Dead Sea. Plan on bringing bug repellant in your personal belongings.


As with all ATTA events, the attire is ‘Adventure Casual’. Adventure Casual means jeans or pants with a shirt or fleece, on occasion you may see a sport jacket or very casual dress. A light jacket or sweater is recommended for the evenings. Pre-Adventures may have specific packing requirements; you’ll receive this information ahead of time from your activity provider.

Even though Jordan is primarily a Muslim country, the freedom of all religions is protected. Some traditional Muslim and Christian women choose to wear clothing that covers their arms, legs and/or hair, however, this is by choice only and no one is subject to these customs. Regardless, very revealing clothing is not appropriate and conservative dress is advisable for both men and women in the old part of Amman (downtown) and in smaller cities


Please check with your hotel for additional information on internet connectivity. There will be free WiFi internet access during AdventureNEXT at the Kempinski Hotel.

Electrical System

The electrical system in Jordan is based on 220 AC volts, 50 cycles. The most commonly used electrical outlets in Jordan are: Type C; Type F; Type G. Visitors from North America will need a converter and adapter.

Commuting from Amman

On May 7th, the welcome dinner takes place at the Movenpick Dead Sea Hotel starting at 19:00. All delegates – both international and domestic are encouraged to attend, as it is included in your event registration and will provide an engaging networking opportunity. If you will be commuting on your own to the area, please note that there will be restricted road access around the Convention Center and Hilton hotel area due to a high security event taking place there.
