8 March 2014 — Daylight Saving Time
In most of Mexico, daylight saving time begins on the first Sunday in April (6 April 2014), and ends on the last Sunday in October (26 October 2014). Clocks are turned ahead one hour. In the Yucatan region, Central Standard Time (CST) becomes Central Daylight Time (CDT).
Belize does not observe daylight saving time, so there will be a one hour difference between Belize and the Yucatan region of Mexico. Travellers should confirm departure times of flights, buses and water taxis from Mexico.
