Do not book directly from America to Jordan. That is very expensive.
Book from America to Brussels Belgium
and then from a ticket from Brussels Belgium to Amman Jordan.
This flight route is way cheaper than any other flight. Choose the cheapest airliner.
Don't bring a lot of luggage.
Buy the Jordan Pass

A taxi will cost you 25-30jd (24/7)
but the local bus only cost 3jd (8 am - 8 pm)

tips in jordan:
During Ramadan 24 April - 24 May do not eat in public
you can get in trouble with the police for that
be friendly and have a postive vibe
Jordanians will ask you: "where are you from?"
But you must not see it like something negative.
They will offer you to drink tea or coffee with them or even eat with them.
Just go along and accept the invitation.
Don't shake hands with woman. Just say "Salaam" which means "peace"
woman & girls: wear wide skirts / dresses at ankle lenght
always have 10 jd in coins and 1jd bills with you for the taxi/busses/ and beggars on the streets
watch out for aggressive salesmen on the streets.
to keep them away say: "Le shoukran" which means: "No thank you".
you will see women and children beggars; give them coins, no bills
do not get in a taxi that has no pricemeter; you will get tricked and pay too much
a normal ride in Amman is between 2 jd - 6 jd
local public coaster busses in Amman
cost 0,35 jd - 0,60
local public big busses in Amman
0,35 jd - 0,40 jd
