Not only the lowest spot on earth, but also the saltiest and most mineral-laden body of water in the world, the Dead Sea, which joins Israel and Jordan, is legendary as a source of healing, and has become a popular center for health, rehabilitation and beauty treatments.

Wouldn't recommend it. Poverty in the West Bank is very high, and that opportunity might prove too tempting to some. You may want to consider a nearby hotel that allows for valet parking. That should alleviate your concern.
