horario estacional

In the past, Mexico synchronized its daylight saving time (dst) with the United States mainly for business and economic reasons. However, daylight saving time has been a contentious issue and is not likely to be extended to reflect the daylight saving changes in the United States enacted as a result of the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

In 2007, the United States and Canada decided to start Daylight Saving Time (DST) on the second Sunday of March and end on the first Sunday of November.  Which means for those of you NOB (North of the Border),  don't forget you should have changed your clocks this morning at 2am, or last night before you went to bed.  And remember,  the extra hour time difference for the next 3 weeks with your SOB (South of the Border) friends!


Daylight saving time is referred to in Spanish as "horario estacional" or "horario de verano".




So here are the dates of Daylight Savings Times for Mexico from 1996 through to 2015
