Ariel Hernán "Chino" Garcé (born 14 July 1979), is a former Argentine football defender. He played as a central defender or right back in River Plate, Colón de Santa Fe, Olimpo de Bahía Blanca and Atlético de Rafaela.
Garcé started his career with River Plate in 1999. He was part of two championship winning squads before moving on loan to Monarcas Morelia in Mexico in 2003. Garcé returned to River Plate in 2004 and helped the club to win the Clausura 2004 tournament.
Garcé then had his first spell with Colón de Santa Fe, before playing for Olimpo de Bahía Blanca and Rosario Central. While at Olimpo, Garcé was banned for 6 months by the Argentine federation after he tested positive of cocaine.
