The more I read about Eilat, the less sure I am that I want to go there. I've seen iit described as "tacky" and as an "overdeveloped beachg resort." We were going mainly for the snorkelling and the Underwater Observatory Marine Park and were going to stay at the Orchid Reef Hotel. I've already booked flights, but for about $78 can cancel them. If we don't go to Eilat, I would add one extra day to Haifa or Rosh Pina and one to Jerusalem. (Current plan is to drive to Haifa from Tel Aviv mid-day Sunday after flying from Eilat to TA; to spend one night in Haifa and two in Rosh Pina. Current plan is to be in Jerusalem from late afternoon Wed. throug Sunday evening. New plan would have us in Haifa and RP Fri. - Tues., and Jerusalem late afternoon Tues, through Sun. night.) If change plans, wouldn't need taxis to/from airports in TA and Eillat and wouldn't be spending money on snorkeling, etc. but would need rental car for two extra days. If we change plans, we would be in the Haifa area on Shabbat. Would that limit what we can see and do?
