Just got back from visiting friends in Cozumel, Mexico...several flowering plants I was hoping to get ID-ed

This large yellow bell-flower was quite common, often climbing 10-12 feet high.

Possibly a Solandra, commonly called "Chalice Vine": http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&q=chalice vine&oq=&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=B0yaS661HcH68AaDgumdDg&sa=X&oi=image_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CBIQsAQwAA

Solandra longiflora, Trumpet Plant has yellow flowers with long greenish yellow tubes, frilled turned back lobes, and purplish-brown veins.

Solandra grandiflora Chalice Vine has funnel shaped, violet tinged white flowers, that age to yellow.

Solandra maxima Cup of Gold has chalice shaped yellow flowers that are purple veined, and inside has thick purple stripes, and reflexed lobes.
