Nicknamed el Enano (the Dwarf) because of his short build, Turcios began his professional career with Universidad of his native Honduras in 1996, making his debut in the 1997 Apertura, then he played with Motagua winning his first Honduran championship before moving to Deportivo Maldonado of Uruguay in 2001. After a year with Maldonado, he moved to Defensor Sporting, where he would last even less time, moving later in the year to Peñarol.
Turcios moved on to the Liga MX México Primera División in 2004, signing with Estudiantes Tecos. After one season with the Guadalajara-based club, he returned home to Honduras to play with Olimpia. Outside of a one-season stint with Guatemalan side Comunicaciones in 2006, Turcios was a regular fixture in Olimpia's line-up from 2005–2012.
He signed with Atlanta Silverbacks of the North American Soccer League in February 2012. He played the 2012 Apertura season for Real Sociedad but left the club claiming they ended his contract and demanding money. He did not plan to retire after the season, hinting to a return to Motagua, which was later denied by the club.
Turcios made his debut for Honduras in a November 1999 friendly match against Trinidad & Tobago and has earned a total of 87 caps, scoring 7 goals. He has represented his country in 33 FIFA World Cup qualification matches, at the 2000 Summer Olympics and the 2010 FIFA World Cup. He also played at the 2001 and 2009 UNCAF Nations Cups as well as at the 2000, 2003 and 2005 CONCACAF Gold Cups. Also, he played at the 2001 Copa América.
