Spiders, El Oro, Ecuador

Saw these two around said area in February - the big and frankly terrifying one was above the door of the eating area - I assume a huntsman sp? U dunno how fast I ran in and out of that place
Second was in the forest itself...
Any arachnid experts out there to put a name to them?

I'd say the first is a male Heteropoda venatoria, not sure we'll get to the other one.

I think the second is a Wolf Spider of some description but I have no idea which ones are found in Ecuador!

I think the second is a wandering spider, Ctenidae. You can find pictures of similar ones on Flickr but I'm not sure how safe the IDs on there would be. This site might help though -
