Sunset Time for Cabo San Lucas

Recommended Posts

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.timetemperature.com/tzmx/mexico_dst.shtml

 

Here is the website I use to determine sunset times http://www.sunrisesunset.com/custom_srss_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

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?!?!

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 :)

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.

 

HTH

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
