Cuartero was born in Zaragoza, Aragon. He made his senior debut with hometown side Real Zaragoza on 20 June 1993 in a 2–2 away draw against Atlético de Madrid, aged 17, and played there ever since. He went on to appear in 178 La Liga games, plus the 2002–03 season in the second division.
From 2006–09, however, Cuartero would only appear in three league matches, severely hindered by knee injuries. Never more than a utility player, his best league output came in 2003–04, when he appeared in 24 matches for a final 12th place. He finally retired from the game at the end of the 2008–09 season, with the Aragonese again in the second level.
