    I must sound really lame, but due to the change in daylight saving next year, and the fact that Cabo is on Mountain time I am really confused about the sunset time for our wedding. Even worse is that I have read and heard conflicting stories on when sunset will be. Some sites say 6:30, while others tell me 5:30.

    I am leaving for 10 days to Asia next Wednesday and really want to get my invites to the printer prior to going. I feel like a dumbass but I can't figure this out. Anyone know or have a reliable site to check it?

      That's a tough question with Daylight savings time and all. I thought I had a good website for you, but did further research and got myself confused.

      It looks like daylight savings time in Baja California Sur, Mexico happens the first Sunday of April. http://www.timetempe...exico_dst.shtml

      Here is the website I use to determine sunset times http://www.sunrisesu...s_calendar2.asp

      Using the above info, it looks like the sunset would be at 6:30pm on March 24, 2007.

      Tough question, looks like it depends on the day we "spring forward" our clocks. Might want to contact someone in Mexico to make sure.

      Doubt I helped...but I tried...

          thanks Cabobride. I found the same answer through the NOAA website today. Because we're close (time-wise) to the time change it's very difficult to figure out. People that we have spoken with in Cabo are telling us that sunset will be at 5:30... who knows!

          I am going to email my coordinator and ask her if she knows.

          thanks again! :)

              OK, now I'm confused. Here's my understanding (as a March bride) --> DST begins March 11, 2007. Sunset for my date 3/17 is 7:29 pm. Sunset is 7:32 the following Sat 3/24.

              Until I read this...
              MEXICO TIME ZONES
              Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.
              Mexico uses three time zones. Most of the country uses Central Standard Time. The Mexico states of
              Chihuahua, Nayarit, Sonora, Sinaloa and Baja California Sur use Mountain Standard Time and Baja California Norte uses Pacific Standard Time.

              Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 a.m. local time on the first Sunday in April. On the last Sunday in October areas on Daylight Saving Time fall back to Standard Time at 2:00 a.m. The names in each time zone change along with Daylight Saving Time. Central Standard Time (CST) becomes Central Daylight Time (CDT), and so forth. The state of Sonora does not observe Daylight Saving Time.

                holy sh-t Christa. I was hoping that you would chime in. This is SOOOO confusing, even more so because I am trying to get my invites done and book a time slot for the mariachi and can't until I have an idea of the sunset time.

                I was hoping that you would chime in with some advice...

                Maybe I'll just stick with 5pm. If the sunset is at 6:30 then we're good. At 7:30 we're okay too... .5:30 could be problematic.

                how is this so hard?!?!

                  Christa, I think it's around 6:30 per this site

                  http://geography.abo....gaisma.com/en/

                  The roman numerals on the bottom represent months, and the numbers on the right represent time (in hours)

                  so per that graph, the time change occurs the first week of April (as you have read) and so the sun will set around 6:30 for our weddings.

                    duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude.... here is another answer to this question -

                    per my coordinator just a second ago:

                    24

                    Sunrise: 7:20am
                    Sunset: 7:32pm
                    Moonrise: 11:39am
                    Moonset: 12:56am

                    When I asked her to confirm, this is what she sent:

                    The time calendar I sent you already considers the day light saving time Those are local current times for those dates.

                    Anything else let me know :)

                    Rosy


                    wtf? so after daylight saving it does not get dark until 8?

                    hey tash,

                    we had our reception a few minutes after 6pm-about 6:30...started taking pics around 6:45 and have NO sunset pics...so my guess is sunset around 7:30-7:45 for us...our date may 27th.
