This bug has a really shiny golden color.
The shot was taken with an iPhone4 and a magnifying glass, inside my car.
The insulfilm of the windows and my inexperience with photos takes the beauty of the bug away.I think it measures around 6mm.
Thank you for your time

Hi again Aloysio,
This is some species of Tortoise Beetle in the tribe Cassidini.
searching for Tortoise Beetle on Google images I saw one identical on Panama.
We decided to complete our research. We found the Target Beetle, Ischnocodia annulus, on a FlickR profile website.
Seems like the especies could be Ischnocodia annulus.
Also found like Charidotis cincticulus:
