TyreReviews.co.uk and TireRack.com together might help you find what you need. TyreReviews has the gGrips listed
, and they seem to be getting good enough reviews from users. Feedback seems to vary, but one of the comments from the site is that it's a summer tire. Whether that's a good thing or not is up to you. Hopefully between those two sites you'll be able to find the information you need, but a cursory glance doesn't seem to show anyone else with a Mazda 3.
Well it's mostly summer, but it does rain for 3-4 months a year... So I think I would need something more of a wet-summer mix

You sure you cannot get your hands on some Westlake tires? I just checked and they are distributed all over the world. The are cheaper in price, but I have had this same set of 205/40/r17's for a little over 65k miles, and they are still perfect. I travel 70 miles per day also. Check into those if you can
Third world hell Honduras Central America? NO. Sadly no

What's the terrain like over there? Are you driving on smooth roads, roads with potholes, off-roading, etc.? Mix of each?
What's your driving style? Do you aggressively accelerate and brake?
Honestly, I've never had any bad experiences with any particular brand/off-brand tires, but I treat my 2009 RAV4 very well, and make sure the tires are rotated regularly so I can get even tread wear
lots of roads with potholes, very badly paved roads, the occasional of roading DUE to the repairing of the bad roads
