Current Dates and Times across the Caribbean

Standard Time is in effect across most of the Caribbean and the surrounding landmasses shown on the map.

There are major exceptions as the Bahamas, Cuba, Turks and Caicos and the U.S. State of Florida observe Daylight Saving Time. Currently these countries and territories are in Daylight Savings Time and will convert back to Standard Time in the fall.

The countries and island groups of the Caribbean extend across four time zones when Venezuela and (Isla de Margarita) are included.

Portions of Florida, Mexico, Central America and South America are displayed on this map for both geographical and time zone perspective.

UTC and GMT an update

The worldwide standard for coordinated universal time, formerly known as GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), is now abbreviated as UTC (Coordinated Universal Time).

Some sources still refer to it as UTC/GMT and some web browsers, e.g. Mozilla Firefox, still display it as GMT.

The UTC Time (shown directly below) is the standard time zone upon which all other worldwide time zones are based. It never observes daylight saving time.
