It surely is a Automeris sp., but I don't think it is a io. Other species of Automeris can be found in Central and South America, you know:

Hey Jellis and Victoria, Wikipedia says this species (Automeris io) is only found in North America, and this one was spotted in Costa Rica. Is that possible? Thanks

Heredia, Costa Rica
