I will definitely check it out. Mi appreciate your thoughts.

Might also be White-ringed Flycatcher, which would have a white ring around the head. In Social Flycatcher the ring is interrupted by a grey/dark stripe. Unfortunately these guys would almost never show their neck...
Do you have another shot? I would not really challenge your ID, Social Flycatcher is quite common in Costa Rica. But it is worth to check the other possibility.
