Mexico scraps daylight saving time, except along border with U.S.
As of March 2023, Mexico officially ended daylight saving time (DST) across most of the country. This ended the practice of turning the clocks forward and back by one hour each spring and fall, meaning that most parts of Mexico will remain permanently on standard time.
Regardless of the change, DST still occurs in the border cities of the Mexican states along the U.S. border, including Baja California, Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo Leon and Tamaulipas, which typically keep the same time zone as the bordering U.S. states. The Mexican state of Sonora already did not observe DST as its neighbor, Arizona, does not observe it.
