Caribbean Time Zones

The Caribbean straddles two time zones. The western islands—Jamaica and Cayman—fall in the Eastern time zone, the same as the east coast of the US.

The eastern islands fall in the Atlantic time zone, one hour ahead of Eastern time.

Also, many islands do not observe Daylight Savings Time. During the summer months, the western islands are the same as the Central time zone; the eastern islands the same as the Eastern time zone.
