You can take a look at what some of the most popular sites are using for their Spanish versions:

  • Iniciar sesión (Google, Facebook, Twitter, El País, El Mundo)
  • Acceder (Wikipedia)
  • Ingresar (Mercado Libre)
  • Identificarse (Amazon)
  • Entrar (La Caixa, Santander)

"Ingresar", while correct, is more widely used in Latin-American spanish. – Roberto May 27 '14 at 12:37

You can use Login, the spanish speakers who will read it will understand.

You could say : Registro or registrar.

Registrar would be the translation for "sign in", I think. – MikMik May 28 '14 at 6:02
@MikMik registrar is sign up. Sign in is essentially equivalent to log in – Darkhogg May 28 '14 at 8:57
