I know the desciption in the wikipedia link is not exactly the same but I think your frog is a juvinile and the Cuban tree frog can very in color.

Your welcome. I think it's a gray tree frog but I'm not sure. I'll do some research on tree frogs in your area.

Though it's skin looks like a toad if you look at the toes you will see that it is realy a tree frog.
