Help to ID Cuban insects and tarantula

All photos taken at 2017 February.

1st photo was taken near Varadero, Cuban north coast. It was walking my "huts" floor at the early in the morning. Maybe some House Cricket?

2nd was Zapata swamps. Some Hymenoptera?

3rd photo. This Hymenoptera was huge! Almost 10 cm long. And the tarantula was even bigger. That wasp(?) drag the paralyzed Aracnid across the road. Fortunately, I didn't drive throw them. This happened at Banos, Central Cuba. I also saw these wasps(?) flying around and when I saw it first time I thought it is Hummingbird!
