Here's a fast way... first I searched google.com with "vector map central
america" and found a number of hits, but couldn't quickly evaluate among
them. Then I tried "vector maps" and clicked the Google category list that
came up, and this pointed to "Webmaster Resources" listing many such sites.

If you're actually seeking a personal recommendation, though, then I
haven't bought any, sorry.

(Just in case you want "vector maps" on a web list for use in a SWF file,
one tip is to either find a map optimized for SWF, or to carefully check
the curves yourself... vectors designed for print may have too many little
kinks for happy web use.)
