Flying into Eilat staying in Aqaba

Planning a 2 week tour of Israel and as part of it we had planned to spend 6 nights in Eilat to relax.

We have searched through the hotels and haven't found anything very good for the price in Eilat. I then noticed that the hotels seem to be much more reasonable in Aqaba, Jordan which is very close by.

Would it be possible to fly into Eilat airport from Tel Aviv and then cross the border for the 6 nights in Aqaba

Yes, it's possible, no problem.

You will get a free Jordanian visa when you enter at Aqaba.

You should absolutely stay in Aqaba instead of Eilat. No comparison in my opinion!

Yes, if you are planning on spending the day in Aqaba as well as the nights! Have a look at one of the hotels with a beach : the Coral Bay is probably one of the cheapest, although it is a bit out of town.
