Hi,and welcome to the site. Your little friend is a male huntsman spider, Heteropoda venatoria species.
These can get a fair size, but will pose no threat to you. ( one in my room, I named Zeus.)
It takes a lot to provoke bites from these, mishandled, they can bite, may compareto a bee sting.
Yes, this is Heteropoda venatoria (Huntsman Spider). Filed. Hello, and welcome to Spider ID. 🙂
