This is a firefly from the family Lampyridae. Quite a tricky beetle. I am not really sure if we can down to genus and/or species level. We definitely need an expert. Reminds me of a Photinus sp.

Like Machi said Lampyridae not longhorn. Hope you're enjoying CR ;-)

Sería estupendo si se podría añadir esta foto (y otras de insectos de Costa Rica) a la misión "Insects of Costa Rica":
