      Hi Sergio - are you not able to use the Data Import Wizard for some reason?  If not, and you need to use an API approach, the Connect Web Services API (SOAP) can import up to 1000 records at a time in one request using its Create operation. 

      You can also create contacts using the REST API.

      How many contacts do you need to import?  Also, what will be the data source (e.g., a flat CSV text file of data you have stored locally)?
