Where does the sun rise in Mexico?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Mexico is Isla Mujeres in Region Yucatan Peninsula. There, the sun rises at 6:03 am and sets at 7:29 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Quinta del Cedro (Baja California) at 19:56.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon, causing sunset to last for a different duration. Mexico City lies on the 19th degree of northern latitude and thus a good distance from the equator.While a sunset in the northern USA or central Europe can take almost an hour, in Mexico, it lasts only an average of 26 minutes. In June, it's about 26 minutes in Mexico City, while in December it's 25 minutes.
