Is it a Rhino beetle? Rhino beetles have more conspicuous horns than this one but the plonotum and elytra are as tough. I noticed they come out at nights so they must be nocturnal. Saw this one on its back on the house entry stairs struggling to try to get upright. It's kind doesn't just seem to eat or cling to any plant they prefer the palm species too.

 

Below is a frontal shot. Figure that face out if you can... I can't but isn't nature full of surprises? So sorry this is the closest I could show you as I forgot my macro camera/lens while packing for my trip.
