Comments & ID Thoughts

This was a picture taken in Heredia, Costa Rica. I have been trying to weeks to figure out what this spider is. When I asked a local, he said he had no idea and that these spiders just recently started showing up in the country and no one has any background knowledge about them. I haven't seen many around since then, but then again, that day I was in an outdoor cultural museum and I've primarily remained in the suburbs and city areas of Heredia, Costa Rica. If anyone could please let me know what it is I'd highly appreciate it! Thank you!
