Aggressive Business, Tax & Practice Mgmt. Seminar – Aruba

Aggressive Business, Tax & Practice Mgmt. Seminar – Aruba

This seminar will help you save taxes, retire wealthy and be better at running the business of your practice. The goals are simple — to conduct a tax-deductible seminar at a delightful site, for a modest cost, and have the doctor and spouse learn enough to more than pay for the trip. The majority of attendees are repeat attendees. Why? Because the emphasis is on easy-to-implement practical ideas on such things as aggressive (but always legal) tax ideas that too many timid accountants fail to suggest, practice building ideas, retirement plans, practice transition ideas, employee benefits, insurance, cost cutting ideas and others.

Home to one of the “Top 10 Beaches in the World,” Aruba is the most revisited destination in the Caribbean, with more than half of all visitors returning year after year.  Adventure meets serenity on this island of contradictions – where the sun-kissed, sandy shores of the world-famous beaches intersect with the rugged desert of the northeast coast in Arikok National Park, and where Dutch influence meets American ease.  Adventure-seekers bask in cool waters at the Natural Pool (Conchi) and hike through the Guadirikiri Caves and Ayo Rock Formations, uncovering history and civilization at every turn.

The sun shines in Aruba year-round, boasting a constant 82°F, low humidity and refreshing east trade wind breezes.

Aruba’s diverse geographical differences create a distinct combination of land and see activities, unlike any others found in the Caribbean.  Adventure-seekers can explore the depths of Arikok National Park’s rugged and wild interior during an off-road Jeep Safari tour or by hiking, biking or horseback riding more than 20 square miles of wild flora and fauna.  Aquatic adventures are abundant along the world-famous beaches, attracting windsurfers, kite surfers, sailors, snorkelers, divers and more.  Vacationers craving peace and tranquility often find paradise during a rejuvenating spa treatment or strolling through downtown Oranjestad, exploring high end shopping centers, historic museums and vibrant art galleries.  Island excitement continues at dusk with a variety of bars, casinos and festivals beckoning tourists and locals alike.

With more than 90 nationalities on the island, Aruba is at the epicenter of a cultural melting pot, offering Amerindian, Latin and European influences found in every aspect of life, from language and island events to flavor-rich cuisine.  Foodies enjoy a mouthwatering assortment of culinary flavors from fresh seafood, Caribbean and vegetarian dishes, to exotic churrascaria creations and vibrant Italian, Mexican and Creole, found at more than 200 on-island restaurants ranging from local dining spots to world-class international establishments.

Boasting more than 50 events annually, Aruba hosts festive island celebrations for both travelers and locals to enjoy.  Hosted every Thursday on Main Street in San Nicolas, the Carubbian Festival ignites Caribbean culture with Carnival parades, dancing and local culinary fare.  Downtown Oranjestad comes to life each Tuesday as locals and guests join together for the Bon Bini welcome festival showcasing musicians, dancers, artists and craftsmen who parade around in their very best wares.  There is also a bustling art scene, with galleries containing glass, sculptures, oils, ceramics and more throughout the island.

NIGHTLIFEWith a fun, safe and lively nightlife beckoning tourists and locals, Aruba’s excitement continues long after the sun has set.  Couples enjoy romantic evenings at a number of open-air dining establishments or test their luck at one of the island’s casinos.

CASINOS – Games are aplenty at the various high-stakes casinos on the island.  Along the high-rise hotel district, slot machines, roulette and blackjack tables are abundant at the Aruba Marriott Resort (Stellaris Casino).

PALM BEACH PLAZA – Designed in a courtyard style, Palm Beach Plaza is a multi-level mall with approximately 15,000 sq. ft. of fine shopping, dining and entertainment.  More than just a shopping mall, Palm Beach Plaza features a state-of-the-art amphitheater, spectacular water features and entertainment for the entire family.


For many, spending tranquil days basking and relaxing in the unending sunshine is the highlight of their Aruba vacation.  But beyond the beaches, adventure-seekers will discover one happy island full of invigorating land and sea activities, from underwater exploration to rugged and wild excursions through Arikok National Park.


  • Catamaran Sailing, Snorkeling and SCUBA Diving – Good visibility, several shallow reefs and captivating shipwrecks give snorkelers an array of options. The island boasts more than 20 dive spots ranging from 20 to 100 feet, including the Shipwreck of Antilla, one of the most popular spots for snorkelers and divers alike.
  • SNUBA – Emerging as a popular alternative to snorkeling and SCUBA diving. SNUBA is the perfect option for both beginner and advanced non-certified divers.

  • Arikok National Park – Sprawling across nearly 20% of the island’s landmass, government-protected Arikok National Park is an exciting playground for visitors seeking something more than a traditional day on the beach. Adventurers rejoice as they explore the 20 miles of rugged and wild, desert-like terrain via ATV, UTV, Jeep Safari, horseback or foot.  Tucked along the cactus speckled northern shore, Arikok National Park is home to many hidden beaches, cacti, natural bridges and pools, historical cave paintings and indigenous flora and fauna including the Aruba rattlesnakes, burrowing owls and blue whiptail lizards.  The park’s visitor center provides an enriching overview of the land’s culture, history and conservation efforts.
