Enrique Silva was born in the northern Mexico town of Navojoa, Sonora where he studied Agricultural Engineering and began his love affair with fresh herbs and produce. Upon graduating, Silva traveled to the Los Cabos region of Baja and began working in the hospitality industry, most notably at Hotel Palmilla (now OneandOnly Palmilla) where he was mentored by master chef Larry Nicola. Silva left Baja in 1994 to help inaugurate the Alyeska Prince Hotel in Girdwood, Alaska where he worked as restaurant manager at the elegant Prince Court restaurant.

The following year he reunited with Nicola as manager of the chef's signature downtown eatery, Nicola.

In 1996 Silva and partner Fernando Hernandez teamed up back in Los Cabos to open their own restaurant, Tequila, one of the first fine-dining establishments in what was still a very small town that offered the freshest possible ingredients fusing Mexican, Asian and Mediterranean flavors.

In 2003 Silva's love of agriculture and the at times lack of availability of fresh produce and herbs led him to begin planting his own organic farm, Huerta Los Tamarindos, 10 minutes away from his restaurant planting crops that include numerous varieties of basil, rosemary, sage, marjoram, thyme, chives, lemon grass, tomatoes, eggplant and much more.
In 2010 Silva expanded Huerta Los Tamarindos to include an events garden, packing plant, cooking school, gift shop and organic educational facility.

Huerta Los Tamarindos is an organic farm and restaurant located in San Jose Del Cabo. We offer farm tours, cooking classes, and also can provide an outdoor event center for parties and gatherings.
