But since you cannot buy a simyo sim in a brick & mortar shop, and you 
need a spanish address to have it delivered, I don't think it's an option.
I don't know about yoigo, but I do know they're revamping their rates 
(for the worse, as always), so it's possible they're going to cripple 
the 1,2€/day connection.

Here you'll find a table comparing the various rates, however most (if 
not all) of them have a minimum contract of a year or more:
