Saturday, May 19, 2018. Today, we head to Aqaba which is our last stop for the trip.

Ended up leaving at around 8:30am due to us having to wait for the driver. The driver actual left last night and didn't stay in the camp like we did. Got back to the village at 8:45am where we spoke with the owner briefly about our experience.
It seems like there is a lot of hustling going on and everyone is asking us to give them 5 stars on TripAdvisor. Even offered us access to their WiFi in order to go it in person. I have no issues with rating places, but I don't like how I get bullied into doing so.

After lunch, we wandered the area to find out what we could about snorkeling in the area and we visited a few shops. It cost roughly 17 JD per person and this would include transportation and rentals. On the way back to the hotel, we visited the Visitor Center where we were told that we could just drive to where we want to go snorkeling and just rent the equipment there which sounded like a better deal and made our decision easy for tomorrow.
Ended up at the hotel and watched the Royal Wedding! Perfect timing, since it was too hot to stay outside. When it was done (or we got bored), we went to the pool at the hotel. There were a lot of people there, but most were oddly just sunbathing and not in the pool. The pool was okay. There is a hot tub there as well. Towels were included, so we didn't need to bring our own.
Went to the local Carrefour to look for things to buy. Ended up getting souvenirs and some water there.
