Roatan Unique From Mainland Honduras Life and Culture

Life on Roatan is different from mainland Honduras life. Because of its unique history, English is widely spoken in Roatan, although the official language of Honduras is Spanish. For 200 years, Spanish conquistadores and British pirates battled for control of these islands, with the English controlling Roatan for many years.

Roatan’s history also includes the Garifuna culture while mainland Honduras culture has an ancient Mayan influence. Roatan’s villages show the island’s diverse culture. Punta Gorda is the first Garifuna village in Central America while French Harbor has one of the largest fishing fleets in the Caribbean.

Island events also reflect Roatan’s culture with a Garifuna Festival, a Pirate Fair, a Shrimp Festival and the Roatan Fishing Tournament.
