Help with some Orioles from Quintana Roo (Yucatan peninsula, Mexico)


I need help to identify some orioles seen in the state of Quintana Roo, in Mexico, last august (12-13th).

Pictures 1-2 were taken in Tulum, near the beach. I think that the bird that appears in the first picture was the upper bird seen in the second one, but not sure. Can they be orange orioles?

Pictures 3-5 correspond to the same individual, seen in Akumal (within the gardens of one of the hotels). My first thought was a yellow-backed oriole, but the tail is not dark, which creates me some doubts.
