Dead Sea in Jordan or Israel?

Jump to last reply

We will be going to Jordan and Israel in Nov/Dec 2008. Which side is better for a visit to the Dead Sea? Either one would be a daytrip from Amman or Jerusalem, so not looking to stay in the area. Just spend an afternoon, float in the sea, and go back. which one would be a shorter drive? will have rental car in both. Also, if anyone has recommendations for hotels or areas that are good for daytrippers, it would be helpful. not looking for anything fancy, but a shower is a must. If there are public areas (non-hotels) that have showers, that would be ok as well. Does anyone know costs of using hotel facilities (shower, beach) for the day/afternoon?
thanks!
