Thank you Scott for taking your time searching for an ID. I found this "Aechmea bracteata". What do you think?

Yes, an epiphytic bromeliad, spiny like another bromeliad, the pineapple :-) I've been looking but not found it yet. Must be listed in a mangrove survey there, such a beauty!

Beautiful!! Sort of like bromeliads but spiny, love the flowers!
