Spring AheadMost people in Mexico will set their clocks ahead one hour this weekend as Daylight Saving Time begins.

We officially lose the hour at 2 a.m. Sunday, April 2, so adjust your clocks before heading to bed Saturday night.

Most of the U.S. and Canada already went through this drill back on March 12, working stiffs grumbling about a weekend robbed of one precious hour.

The states of Quintana Roo and Sonora do not recognize DST, however. Neither do border towns close to the United States.

For practical reasons, the states of Quintana Roo and Sonora do not observe Daylight Saving Time, maintaining a single time zone throughout the year. Sonora aligns its clocks with neighboring Arizona, which also ignores DST. 

Quintana Roo stays on Eastern Standard Time to match the clocks in other Caribbean tourist destinations that compete with the Riviera Maya. When Yucatán enters DST, its clocks will match Quintana Roo’s until the last Sunday of October, when clocks retreat an hour again.
