Chiapas Local

Can anybody ID this good-looking son of a gun? I find myself getting really interested in the spiders of Chiapas and vicinity. I'm just drawn to limnal spaces I guess, having spent much of my life bordering Mexico to the north. Perhaps it's time to pay attention to the southern border for a bit.
Yep, just hanging out on the side of the road. "Standing on the corner, watching all the girls go by..."

A friend of mine and his daughter did a huge long bicycle road trip, and they saw this guy just before bicycling into Central America. He wondered what it was.
 
Yeah, he bicycled from Washington State to Argentina with his daughter. I think you're going to have to go fetch it yourself. And according to him, you're going to have to fight off the howler monkeys to get at him. Good luck with that. But God, what a stunner!
 
Don't just "like," you bums! Y'all chimed in! I need some opinionated know-it-alls, er, I mean EXPERTS to tell me this guy's likely moniker.
