In 1991, Bill Royster took a six-month sabbatical, which ended up stretching into three years. He fished his way down the Pacific coast to Costa Rica, where he released an 800-pound blue marlin off Herradura Bay, as well as hundreds of sailfish. During the trip, he fell in love with the natural beauty of the Central American nation as well as its friendly people. As the owner of general engineering and development companies in California, he turned his attention to building what would eventually become the Los Sueños Resort and Marina. Since the turn of the millennium, the resort has become one of the world's top destinations for those with billfish on the brain. When he's not at work, Royster enjoys spending time aboard his 80-foot Donzi, Numero Uno, traveling throughout Costa Rica and the world with his girlfriend of 17-plus years, Sandra Gutierrez.
