Airbnb has become the perfect way to have an impact on the community you visit. Your expenditures directly support local entrepreneurs, not to mention the rich experience you have staying in neighborhoods far removed from the major hotel chains.

Between the bustling cities, magnificent ruins, dry deserts and waterfront towns facing the Dead Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba, a vacation to Jordan is calling your name. Plus, the people are known for the hospitality and welcoming nature, and tend to be happy to help out if you need directions. Given this generally welcoming attitude, we recommend adopting the attitude yourself and getting to know the local people and local cultures in the best way possible -- by staying in a local home. From city center apartments to country houses, here are the best Airbnbs in Jordan.
