My buddies are doing a trip that involves some desert camping and what not. When I talk to Lebanese and Jordanian friends they all say it's completely safe.
Definitely makes sense to post this on a Denver Broncos message board but what the hey... other than cougar life this is the only board I visit.
Jordan is pretty safe, probably not quite as safe as Kuwait but remain vigilant and don't act like a fat, arrogant American and you should have a great time.
