Large Orange Spider - Rincon, Puerto Rico

Brooklyn, NY

We've run into multiple ones of these large, hairy leged, orange spiders.
Our house is in the mountains in Rincon, Puerto Rico
Any ideas of what this is?

It's a male huntsman spider (family Sparassidae); possibly in the genus Heteropoda. These also are known as giant crab spiders; they are not dangerous to humans.
