I'd go for juvenile light morph Short-tailed Hawk. Plumage and leg color fit.

I wouldn't assume this was a pair of same species if the male and female were photographed seperately on different days. However, I do agree with Masked Trogons for the following reasons:

Although out of range, a Rufous-headed Tanager looks like a possible match. Of course, I don't think it is because my guide says that bird is unmistakeable ;)

Additionally range would rule this out as it is not found in the Yucatan and it is usually a higher elevation species.

I can't tell which it is from this photo, but wouldn't the Rough-legged Hawk (which also often shows a "belly band") be another possibility?

I'd go for Brown-crested Flycatcher for number 3 based on rufous primary edging and what appears to be some pink coloring on base of bill.

Less sure, but I'd still go for Brown-crested for number 1...

Number 3 is a Cattle Tyrant. Notice those long legs.
Number 1 and 2 I believe are Myiarchus flycatchers. For 1 I'd say Brown-Crested based on the amount of rufous in the wings and tail. Number 2 also...

To me the flight pattern you mention sounds like Spotted. Also, lack of spots on belly is not unusal for this species as it molts out of breeding plumage into winter.
