In 2011 174,000 people left the UK in order to find work in other countries. Central America is made up of seven different countries – Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama. There are many reasons why you may have moved to one of these countries – job opportunities, education and marriage include some of the biggest factors involving emigration.
However, returning to the UK, for a winter holiday, is always an option. Here are just some of the reasons why you may wish to come back:

1) Reconnect those family ties
As mentioned, seeing family is a big reason for you to return to the UK. While you might not have been able to get back for Christmas due to work constraints or travel limitations, you can always return in the New Year to spend some time with your loved ones.
2) Enjoy a holiday
A lot of people move from the UK to Central American countries that enjoy warmer climes and better weather. However, if you fancy a holiday this year why not come home to experience the natural beauty of England while also seeing family and friends? You could stay in any one of the country’s national parks to make the most of its stunning countryside, and you’ll also be within reach of some excellent cities.
3) Re-apply for your visa
If your visa has expired and you didn’t get a chance to renew it in time, you’ll need to return to the UK in order to re-apply. It’s illegal to stay in another country past your visa expiration date.
4) Walk your loved one down the aisle
There were 241,100 weddings in England and Wales in 2010, so if you have family living in the UK still you might find yourself being called back to take part in the ceremony. Similarly, if you’ve recently married in Central America, you might want to return to the UK to celebrate with your family.
Central America may be packed with amazing sights, have an incredible culture and enjoy mouth-watering cuisine, but returning to the UK for some home comforts could be just what you need this winter.
