- The municipality of Bahia de Banderas, Nayarit, switched to the Central Time Zone on April 2010, to help tourists and avoid complications.
- Nuevo Vallarta is therefore on the same time zone as Puerto Vallarta
- Bahia de Banderas includes these other tourist towns on the same time zone:
- The rest of Nayarit remains on Mountain Standard Time.
