aqaba. jordania North of the Red Sea, in the perfect crossroads linking three continents; Asia, Africa and Europe, is Aqaba. The natives here say that Jordan is not only the safest place in the Middle East, but also in the world. Knowing Jordan is an important part of knowing history, because the bible is full of references to the Dead Sea, Mount Nebo, Wadi Run or the amazing and mysterious city of Petra that are all located here. Thanks to the Gulf of Aqaba, there is an outlet to the Red Sea. This is ideal for environmentalists and marine biologists because it hosts a rich fauna and flora with over 1000 fish and 200 coral species, which generates some difficult seabed to find anywhere else in the world.
