Hector and I have shared a bond rooted in mutual respect and admiration for over a decade here in Punta Mita. I fondly remember his early culinary journeys at Aramara in the Four Seasons Punta Mita. His transition from chef to restaurateur has been nothing short of awe-inspiring. One of the things that consistently struck me about Hector was his impeccable work ethic, unwavering dedication, and a fiery passion that’s truly contagious.

I can vividly recall the day he walked into my office earlier this year, with a cup of coffee in hand, sharing that his lease at Punta de Mita was ending. A casual chat soon spiraled into an idea that was both thrilling and promising. Why not move to the Palapa at Kupuri Beach Club? Looking back, I’m firmly convinced that this decision not only stands as a testament to Hector’s entrepreneurial spirit and professional growth but also promises to be a feather in Punta Mita’s illustrious gourmet cap.

So, to Hector, I say, «Break a leg!»
