So, I could discard this solution as a final solution.

Ok. Where Could I find this extract ?

I am using extracts from http://downloads.cloudmade.com and
http://download.geofabrik.de . I wish to take my own extracts but they
will be to bigger to take from openstreetmaps web.

Another thing is that I will be importing Russia as well... but I think
that I could import Central America and then import Russia without any
problem because it shouldn't be any duplicate entry in both files.

Thank you!
