I think you're right bayucca, in the form of antennas and then the red band is well on upper wings, the Erato Longwing looks like to have white strips. This one doesn't have white strips.

This is not a Heliconius erato. It is from a different family as Erato, which is Nymphalidae and Heliconiinae. This one is an Acraeidae. Actinote sp., today called Abananote sp. (but not all of these in the same genus changed their name!). It is most probably Abananote erinome. But I would need some more pictures to confirm. Do you have some more??

It's impressive the amount of this species of butterfly that can be seen along the rivers
