Nicknamed "Tapera", Ramos initiated his career in 1988 playing for Bolivian club Destroyers alongside future stars Marco Etcheverry and Erwin Sánchez as teammates. They quickly established themselves as the "Golden Trio" because of their impressive ability and the perfect blend they created on the field. In 1994, Ramos transferred to club Guabirá, where he excelled and became the best player in the league. In 1995, he went abroad and signed for Brazilian team Cruzeiro. While playing in Brazil, Ramos suffered a serious knee injury that kept him away from the sport for nearly 14 months. After his recovery in 1997, he returned to first division football in great shape with club The Strongest before joining the Major League Soccer, where he played for the Tampa Bay Mutiny (1998–99) and the New England Revolution (2000). After leaving the MLS, he played for Bolivian teams Oriente Petrolero, Unión Central and Club San José, where his career came to an end in 2003.
