Sun, 1 Feb 2015 — Q. Roo Changes to EST

At 2am on Sunday, 1 February 2015, Quintana Roo, México, will jump to 3am, placing Q. Roo on Eastern Standard Time in the USA. We originally thought Q. Roo would still change to Daylight Savings Time the first Sunday in April, but the folks at The Chetumal Connection think the EST will be permanent (no Daylight Savings) and so do the people here:

Q. Roo Will Change to Eastern Time

Wed 14 Jan 2015 — At 2am on Sunday, 1 February 2015, Quintana Roo will change to Eastern Time.

Q. Roo Will Change to Eastern Time

At 2am on Sunday, 1 February 2015, Quintana Roo, México, will jump to 3am, making Q. Roo almost exactly the same as Eastern Time in the USA. This is being done mostly for the convenience of tourists, especially cruise ship passengers. The reason it is not EXACTLY the same is that Daylight Savings Time in Q. Roo will begin the first Sunday in April, while in the USA it begins the second Sunday in March. Thanks to The Chetumal Connection for this tip.
