    the three of them are very similar

    Tengo ganas de ir a españa: "i want to go to spain" i think this is the right one to use,you can also say "quiero ir a españa"
    Estoy deseando ir a españa : the writting of this one is correct but it sounds a little bit weird to me,literally means "i am wishing to go to spain" i would use the first one instead of this,both means the same
    No veo el momento ir a españa: this one has a little mistake,you forgot to puy "de" between momento and ir "No veo el momento de ir a españa", "can't wait to go to spain ",the meaning is pretty much the same but a i guess it is a little bit stronger than the first one,i think that the main difference is that when you use the third one you have some kind of plan or certainty that you are going to spain and you can wait for that to happen but in the first one you just have a wish or an intention but you don't know if you are going.

    Feel free to correct my english writting,it would help to improve myself

    Tengo ganas de ir a España = No has hecho planes respecto a ello, pero en un futuro (más o menos lejano, incierto) quieres ir a España y es bastante probable que incluyas este país en tus vacaciones.

    Estoy deseando ir a España = Tienes muchísimas ganas de ir a España, sientes un gran deseo de conocer este país y ya has hecho planes para ir y has elegido la fecha.

    No veo el momento DE ir a España = Seguro que ya tienes comprado el billete de avión que te llevará a conocer España.

    Bueno, pues buen viaje y espero que te guste nuestro país, jejeje.
