In the United States and Canada, Daylight Saving Time began this past Sunday, March 11. In Mexico we've still got another three weeks to go before we "spring forward" on April 1st. This three week lag can cause a fair amount of confusion for travelers.There are three time zones in Mexico: most of the country is usually on Central Standard Time, but Chihuahua, Nayarit, Sonora, Sinaloa and Baja California Sur states correspond to Mountain Standard Time, and Baja California is on Pacific Standard Time. The three weeks in the spring before Daylight Saving Time begins in Mexico, and one week in the fall after Daylight Saving Time ends, Mexico is one hour out of sync with the corresponding U.S. time zones. Keep these time differences in mind when making your Mexico travel plans.
