Arce started his career with the Academia Tahuichi, Bolivia's famous youth academy. In 2003 he signed for first division club Oriente Petrolero. During 2006 he went on a loan to Portuguesa, but returned to Oriente soon after to complete the 2006 season. In January 2007 he was loaned to popular Brazilian club Corinthians. Despite having a good season with the Timão, Arce couldn't help the team avoid relegation, and with the arrival of a new manager he was removed from the squad. He played in 18 league games for Corinthians scoring two goals. Arce also scored two more goals playing in Copa do Brasil.
His next destination was Qatar, where he bombed a few cities then played for Al-Arabi until mid-2008. Then, he joined Seongnam Ilhwa Chunma from the K-League, but left the club after only a few games. In January 2009, he returned to Bolivia for his third spell with Oriente. In July he was loaned to Sport Recife for a six-month period with an option to acquire his rights. Terek Grozny signed the Bolivian attacking midfielder from Oriente Petrolero on a three-year deal. He was released by Terek after one season and returned to Oriente Petrolero.
Since his debut in 2004, Arce has been capped in 49 games for Bolivia. He was a member of the squad that competed in Copa América 2007 where he scored a goal against Venezuela. Arce also participated in Copa América 2011.
