Of course, if my ISP provided an IPv6 tunnel, would be better.
No such thing, to my knowledge.
You could just do it yourself.

What, create a huge bandwidth tunnel at home? No way.

What "huge" bandwidth? It would only serve you, so limited to your
existing bandwidth.

But how do I send out my IPv6 packets, if neither my router nor my ISP
admits those packages? I need some one that has connection to both
networks to receive IPv6 packets encapsulated in IPv4 packets sent by me,
open the capsules, and send the IPv6 packets on their way.

That's the job of the tunnel broker.
I myself use for this service, many more exist.

Basically, the ipv6 packets are wrapped in a v4 packet, sent to the broker, being extracted, and forwarded to the real destination... Connection wise: your line will likely be the bottleneck... but forcing your provided to finally catch up with technology might be a good thing too.

And you say I can create that tunnel, at home? So that every client in
Spain from Telefonica connect to me in order to go out on IPv6?

You can create the tunnel for the one machine, or for a subnet behind your machine.. surely you do not want to share it with 'all of spain'

Hope that helps you a bit more.
