I met lots of these in the rainforest growing on trees or trunks, close to a river. (Paraty-Brazil) the Bromeliaceae is a gigantic family, maybe it won't be possible to bring to specie level, but I'd like to try anyway Rolling my eyes.

Vriesea incurvata on FloraSBS

It all seems to match, even the yellow flower! I check others listed there and they are very different. The leaves look broader on some but that may be due to location.
