The Time In Cozumel

Cozumel and the rest of Mexico will end Daylight Savings Time this weekend, a week ahead of the equivalent clock change in the United States and Canada.

This means, just for next week, Cozumel will be an extra hour behind, something visitors may find useful to know - especially those arriving on a cruise.

So, from October 30 to November 6, 2011, the island will be one hour behind CST and two hours behind EST.
