There are just a few hours left before we get that long-awaited opportunity for an extra hour’s sleep in the morning. That’s right, Daylight Saving Time 2019 officially ends for most of Mexico at 2:00 am on Sunday, October 27, 2019.
Since Mexico did not go along with the changes that the United States made to established daylight savings time in 2007, it’s important to note that the shift to standard time in most of Mexico will take place a week earlier than U.S. citizens, who will not set their clocks back until 2:00 am on Sunday, November 3, 2019.
Ten northern border municipalities observe the same DST schedule as the United States. They are: Acuna, Anahuac, Juarez, Matamoros, Mexicali, Nuevo Laredo, Ojinaga, Piedras Negras, Reynosa, and Tijuana. But the rest of Mexico will be an hour behind the U.S. for the next week, something visitors may find useful to know – especially those arriving by cruise ship or airplane.
At the Mérida International Airport, flight itineraries will be rescheduled to avoid delays and confusion for passengers, and all of the information screens in the national and international corridors, terminals, waiting rooms and shopping areas will be adjusted, detailing arrivals, departures and flight status.
