Rotan is beautiful with great beaches. Haven't been to Margarita Island yet so can't speak to that.

I'm a Canadian who has lived in Margarita Island for more than 20 years. I love it.

We are located near one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, Playa El Agua. Have a look at http://www.playaelagua.info/ for more info. Also the weather is guaranteed perfect here. Over 90% sunny days per year. .

We have a B&B near the beach & have had many Canadian guests all of whom have loved it here.

I've never been to Honduras so I can't compare the 2 places.

I've been to both and would always choose Roatan over Margarita Island. The West Bay beach in Roatan is absolutely beautiful and the snorkelling right from shore is fantastic. Also, English is widely spoken so you get less of the language barrier to dela with.

Margarita is an excellent value and very enjoyable but I prefer Roatan.
