We will be traveling in late August from a 3 night visit to Wadi Rum and Petra in late August. We will be transported to the Aqaba-Eilat border crossing to walk across on a Thursday. I think that we plan to take the 2:15 bus to Jerusalem. There is a later bus also. We would also like to snorkel in the red sea. I have several questions: What time should we plan to be at the border to allow enough time to make the bus, if we have reservations? Does the Coral Beach Nature Reserve always have the all-inclusive National Parks pass available for purchase? Last time, we started at Caesarea and they only had 6 park passes. Will there be a place to store our 2 carry-on bags and 2 daypacks at the reserve? About how much will taxi rides from the border to the reserve to the bus station cost? Or are these in walking distance? I am having issues finding the info on googlemaps and the nature reserve website. The flight times were more expensive, didn't seem like the times were that convenient and we would have the extra waiting time. Thank you.
