UTC−05:00 is a UTC offset of 5 hours earlier than Coordinated Universal Time. It is observed as Central Daylight Time in the United States and Canada from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November (see Daylight saving time); otherwise, as Eastern Standard Time.

In Central America, this time offset is observed year round in the Western Caribbean Time Zone.

The clock time in this zone is based on the mean solar time of the 75th meridian west of the Greenwich Observatory.
