Right, Glen.

If the vowels are placed so acronyms can be pronounced as words, we pronounce them as words; if there are too many consonants or unnatural combinations of them, we spell them.

OTAN -> /otán/ (some pronounce /otan/)
ONU -> /onu/
FARC-> /farc/
FSLN -> /efe ese ele ene/

SRE [Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores] -> /ese erre e/
FMI [Fondo Monetario Internacional] -> /efe eme i/
CFE [Comisión Federal de Electricidad] -> /ce efe e/
DF [Distrito Federal = Mexico City] -> /de efe/
ADN [Ácido Desoxirribonucleico] -> /a de ene/
OEA [Organización de Estados Americanos] -> /o e a/
PNB [Producto Nacional Bruto] -> /pe ene be/
PIB [Producto Interno Bruto]-> /pib/
UNAM [Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México] -> /unam/
IVA [Impuesto al Valor Agregado] -> /iba/
IMPI [Instituto Mexicano de la Propiedad Industrial] -> /impi/
BID [Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo] -> /bid/
OMS [Organización Mundial de la Salud] -> /oms/
INEGI [Instituto Nacional de Estadística, Geografía e Informática] -> /ineji/
