Haiti and Daylight Savings

If you are hoping to find the current local time of Haiti, this is even a little more tricky. According to TimeanDate.com Haiti is a little hit and miss as to whether they observe daylight savings or not.

Adjusting for Daylight Savings

As mentioned above the Dominican Republic does not adjust its local time for daylight savings. That means if you are living in California (Pacific Time) you are either 3 or 4 hours behind the Dominican Republic.
