How many times have you tried to get hotel reservations in Mexico, tried to go to vacation in Mexico, or rent a car in Mexico, and when you go to call you realize that no one is there because of the time difference?
The exact time in Mexico is based on the time zones for Mexico. We will always try to give you the exact time for Mexico. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Mexico might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Mexico are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Mexico, and falls back one hour in the fall for Mexico. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Mexico improve its tourism and depend less on Mexico's electricity supplies.
