Mark Your Calendars!

We're telling you this ahead of time so you can be prepared. Daylight Saving Time is over at the end of the month. But not for you Gringos up in the U.S. and Canada, only down here in Mexico. And not in all of Mexico, just parts of it.

In most of Mexico, including Los Cabos, Daylight Saving Time ends on the last Sunday in October, which is the 29th this year. That means we roll our clocks back one hour (remember the old saying, Wspring forward and fall backs).

However, the Mexican states of Sonora and Quintana Roo (think Cancun) don't observe Daylight Saving Time. And in 2010, ten Mexico municipalities that share a border with the United States started rolling the clocks back on the same day as the U.S., which is three weeks later (November 5th this year). This includes Mexicali and Tijuana up in Baja California Norte. There will be a quiz on this. Especially if you blow through your T time that Sunday.

Bottom line: If you're down here in Cabo, set a reminder to roll back your clocks on October 29th. If you're up in the States or Canada, wait until November 5th.
