Dear Carlos,
This is an Orbweaver in the family Araneidae, and while we cannot provide you with a species, we are able to inform you that according to BugGuide:  “Orb weavers are very docile, non-aggressive spiders that will flee at the first sign of a threat (typically they will run or drop off the web). They are not dangerous to people & pets, and are actually quite beneficial because they will catch and eat a lot of pest-type insects.”
