We are certain this is a Tiger Moth in the subfamily Arctiinae. We found these images from the genus Halysidota on the Kirby Wolfe Costa Rica Tiger Moths page, and though they are not exact, they are quite similar. It really resembles its North American relative the Banded Tussock Moth, Halysidota tessellaris.
