I suspect this is not Achurum carinatum, whose distribution is limited to southeastern United States; see

This is more likely to be Omura congrua, which is found in northern South America; see

The colour ranges from light brown to green in different individuals, and females have a wider body than males.

Looks like the Longheaded Toothpick Grasshopper - Achurum carinatum (, but I am not sure if this is the correct species name for your region.
