It's definitely not an Orchard Oriole. It looks like it could be an ant-tanager of some sort.

It didn't look like the orchards I know, but I have no reference point for Costa Rican birds other than the field guide.  Our tour guide came down with Covid on our second day and had to get a replacement so I have 2 days without guidance or direction.  ?

I'd definitely get your replacement guide's input, but the closest thing I came to was a female Scarlet-rumped Tanager (Cherrie's). The brown is a bit strong, but that could be the lighting. https://ebird.org/media/catalog?taxonCode=chetan1&q=Scarlet-rumped Tanager (Cherrie's) - Ramphocelus passerinii costaricensis

I think you are correct @Avery.  And those things were ALL OVER THE PLACE!!  Along with the Clay-colored Sparrows.
