Salticidae is certainly correct, but we should put family names in the scientific field, unless it is not possible to get down to maybe subfamily, better genus and best species level. There are spottings where it is notpossible to get closer than the family. So, after a few weeks with no suggestion you might add the family name or leave it unknown, so somebody that would search for it would find it as unidentified and might help. Sorry for being so complicate. Your english is probably better than my spanish and I have no translation on my iPad.
If you agree with my suggestion, you can add Phiale cf. gratiosa or you are sure about it, Phiale gratiosa in the scientific field. As common nameyoucan take Jumping Spider or your Araña saltarina.

Bayucca, no entiendo donde debo poner "Phiale gratiosa".
Salticidae es incorrecto?

Lo correcto sería: Araña Saltarina
Phiale gratiosa

Creo que el dibujo correcto es el "H" en tu link. Por la banda horizontal cerca de la cabeza

-----------GOOGLE TRANSLATION-----------

Bayucca, I dont understand where I should put "Phiale gratiosa".
Salticidae is wrong?

The right thing would be: Jumping spider
                               Phiale gratiosa

I think the correct picture is the "H" in your link. For the horizontal band near the head

Salticidae, Phiale sp. and looks like being Phiale gratiosa, female and color morph close to "E" in the link.
