Hi all! Thank you for the suggestions and comments!
Alice this was spotted while I was on vacation traveling and I really don't recall the plant that he was on =( but I have one candidate to propose: Hyles euphoria. What do you all think?

Nice photos! I always think caterpillar faces are interesting.

Looks like a type of Swallowtail caterpillar! But I am not sure
