My questions are:
1. Snorkeling - I've seen some disagreement on Trip Advisor about the quality of snorkeling and the best location. Will we have a better experience if we go on a guided tour, or is the snorkeling at Coral Beach, which seems easily accessible, as good as it gets? My husband went as a child and still remembers how incredible it was, but sadly it sounds as if the Eilat reefs have suffered from global warming. A follow-up question there is: is it warm enough to snorkel in Dec?
2. Our children are 12, 9, and 3. To give them a taste of the Arava, would you recommend Timna Park or Red Canyon? We will likely only have time for one hike, and of course having a toddler in tow limits how far we can reasonably walk.
3. If there's a specific site or tour you'd recommend for a family hoping to be active/see the beauty of the Arava & Red Sea but also limited by young children, I'm all ears.
Thanks for any advice!
