Tijuana-San Diego in different time zones Oct. 26-Nov. 2


It’s time again for regular border crossers – and tourists – to navigate two time zones when the Mexico switches to  from Daylight Saving Time this Sunday (Oct. 26). The United States won’t follow suit until Nov. 2. This causes all kinds of problems and surprises for people who go back and forth. The United States and Mexico used to be in synch until last year when the United States opted for a new schedule.  This time around San Diego will be one hour ahead of Tijuana for one week, acording to a short but informative article in The San Diego Union-Tribune.

For some interesting stories of how asynchronous time has disrupted life along the border, read this Union-Tribune story from 2007.

  1. Point of correction:

    Mexico switches *from* Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time Sunday, Oct. 26. The United States switches *from* Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time Nov. 2.
