Unknown Snake at Rancho Naturalista

Unknown Snake
 I zoomed in or cropped one photo for this closer look.
Rancho Naturalista, Costa Rica

Unknown Snake
I’m  guessing about 2 meters long. 
Rancho Naturalista, Costa Rica

He was outside in front of the laundry room and as we gave him attention, he disappeared in the leaves and undergrowth of one of the flowers. At first glance he is a dark brown snake, like the one I saw cross a trail here on my arrival day. At closer look he seems to have an orange belly or at least up front and to have other colors than just brown on his back or dorsal side. See first image. He is similar to 3 or 4 in my snake book, but not an exact match, so I am not naming him.
