Costa Rica birds

Can someone please identify these birds? Taken near Puerto Viejo, Sarapiqui, Costa Rica in January.
Thanks
Chris

I think you were right in the first upload to think Tanager. I am not sure, but the dark bill makes me think possibly hepatic female?

I don't think the bill is right for Hepatic, would be chunkier with an obvious tooth?

My partner, who has been to PV in Sarapiqui, says that Hepatic Tanager doesn't get as low as the town of Puerto Viejo.

Whilst the bill does not look right for Hepatic, it looks okay to me for a female Summer Tanager.
