Each Ministry or National Agency describe in their website their organization chart but there is not any national administrative website that describe the quantity, types and distribution of administratives units or areas thru the government.

Found out the body responsible for "Administrative Boundaries" - Centro Nacional de Registros; corrected original submission. This GeoPortal site has the requisite characteristics, the downloadable datasets and shapefile formats. Only defect is that the license is not open for commercial use without permission. Thank you very much for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
