Daylight Savings Time in USA Different than Mexico: Take Note

While the United States observes daylight savings time by springing forward the second Sunday in March,  this year, March 11, our area of Mexico will not change the clocks.

On Feb. 1, 2015 the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, which includes Cancun, Cozumel and Playa del Carmen, switched from Central Standard Time to Eastern Standard Time.

If you’re planning a trip please plan accordingly.  If you are arriving via a cruise ship, it’s best to consult your particular cruise line, as oftentimes ship time can differ from island time.

Recordatorio: No se aplica el cambio de horario en Quintana Roo

Tomen nota. El cambio de horario en los EUA es distinto al de México. . .

En tanto que los Estados Unidos observa el cambio de horario cambiándolo el segundo domingo en Marzo, este año, Marzo 11, los relojes en nuestra zona no cambiarán.

El 1º de febrero del 2015 el estado de Quintana Roo que incluye a Cancún, Cozumel y Playa del Carmen, cambio la hora del centro al horario de la costa del este.


En caso que esté realizando planes para viajar, tome sus precauciones. Si usted viaja a bordo de un buque turístico, es mejor que consulte con su línea naviera, ya que con frecuencia los horarios son distintos al horario de la Isla.

With a degree in Journalism from a fancy private college she convinced her parents to pay for, Laura writes, edits, and creates the weekly Cozumel 4 You news, promotional articles about the island, and her very own blog, which she finds hilarious. Her long suffering husband, the Fabster, has long since resigned himself to having zero private life, as he’s been involved in her various schemes and plots since his arrival. Proud parents to a variety of rescue dogs and cats, Laura continues to be the bane of her traditional Mexican mother-in-law’s existence, as she muses her way through life in the Mexican Caribbean.
