Unnamed spotting

Description:

orb-weaver spider; black legs with whitish rings; "hair" on legs; Black body with yellow patch strip on back

Habitat:

Dry Tropical Forest, Pacific lowlands; Wet season

Notes:

From my research I believe that I narrowed it down to the Araneidae family due to its salient feature of orb-weaving. And from the images at EOL, I believe I can suggest that it is within the Argiope genus.
