Born in Montevideo to a father of Basque descent, Urretaviscaya started off his career with hometown's Club Atlético River Plate. His Primera División debut came one month shy of his 18th birthday as he scored in a 2–0 win against Liverpool Montevideo in the Clausura's first game, and he eventually netted nine goals overall for the runners-up.
On 2 July 2008, Urretaviscaya signed a contract with Portuguese club S.L. Benfica for a fee of €1.26 million, being rarely used in his debut season. In January 2010, after having made almost no official appearances during the campaign – his only Primeira Liga game was against FC Porto as his team had many players missing due to injuries and suspensions, and he put up a good performance in a 1–0 home win for the eventual champions– he was loaned to Peñarol for five months, thus returning to his country.
Subsequently returned to the Estádio da Luz, Urretaviscaya spent the better part of the following two seasons with the B-team. On 1 September 2014 he terminated his contract with Benfica and penned a one-year deal with F.C. Paços de Ferreira.
Urretaviscaya re-joined Peñarol for a third spell on 23 January 2015, after signing for six months. He was on the move again the following June, joining C.F. Pachuca in the Mexican Liga MX.
Urretaviscaya was part of the Uruguayan squad that competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics, held in London. He earned his first cap for the full side on 28 March 2017: after having come on as a second-half substitute for Carlos Sánchez, he received two yellow cards in 11 minutes and was thus sent off, in a 1–2 away loss to Peru for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
On 2 June 2018, Urretaviscaya was selected for the finals in Russia by manager Óscar Tabárez. He made his debut in the competition on 6 July, playing 17 minutes in the 0–2 quarter-final defeat against France after replacing Nahitan Nández.
