Hi Wayne,
This looks like a female Dobsonfly in the family Corydalidae to us, but North American species are not this colorful.  Male Dobsonflies have much larger mandibles.
  Piotr Naskrecki has an image of a yellow Dobsonfly from Costa Rica on his Smaller Majority blog.  Your individual may be
Nevromus austroindicus based on this Wikipedia posting.
