Born in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg, Caiado joined Sporting Clube de Portugal's youth system at the age of 13, but made only one appearance for the first team as a senior, coming on as a late substitute for Rodrigo Tello in a 2–3 away loss against S.C. Braga on 7 January 2006. He subsequently spent two seasons on loan to G.D. Estoril Praia in the second division, being scarcely played during his stint mainly due to a serious injury.
In June 2008, Caiado joined C.D. Trofense which had just been promoted to the Primeira Liga. He played in slightly half of the league games in his first year, but the club was immediately relegated back.
In the summer of 2010, Caiado joined Olympiakos Nicosia in the Cypriot First Division. He moved clubs and countries again on 29 December 2011, signing a two-and-a-half-year contract with PFC Beroe Stara Zagora in Bulgaria. He made his Bulgarian A Professional Football Group debut in a 0–3 defeat at PFC Ludogorets Razgrad on 3 March 2012; two weeks later he scored his first competitive goal for his new team, against PSFC Chernomorets Burgas, ending his first season with 13 matches and six goals.
On 23 January 2014, joined SC Tavriya Simferopol which at the time ranked second-last in the Ukrainian Premier League. After the Crimean club was disbanded following the peninsula's annexation by Russia, he returned to Portugal's top flight and became Vitória SC's first signing of the summer. The following 28 February, he returned to Ukraine by joining FC Metalist Kharkiv, whom he helped to sixth place during his brief stint.
