Comments & ID Thoughts
I am visiting the town of Camargo in Tarija, Bolivia. This spider entered the kitchen and hid in a basket. The picture shows the spider next to a sandal for size comparison. We let it go afterwards. Could you please identify it?

This spider entered our kitchen, since the door had been open for a while and it hid inside a basket.
I initially looked for pictures in the internet. I thought it could be a wolf or a hobo. The spider did not appear to be exacerbated by our handleling it, and simply wanted to go away. We let it go.
Please help me identify it.
Looks like a huntsman spider.
Thank you! I will look for pictures of the huntsman.
