Born in Aranjuez, Community of Madrid, Mora made his professional debuts with Real Oviedo during 1993–94, and was the undisputed first-choice for the following three seasons. In 1999, he signed for RCD Espanyol, then spent 2002–03 and the following campaign in Segunda División, with Xerez CD and Levante UD respectively.
In 2004–05's top flight, with Levante, Mora played all 38 league matches as his team was relegated in the last matchday. He subsequently joined Valencia CF, where he was the third goalkeeper behind Santiago Cañizares and Ludovic Butelle first and Cañizares and Timo Hildebrand afterwards (Cañizares was axed from the squad in December 2007, but reinstated in April following Ronald Koeman's firing), playing only three La Liga games in three years; he left the club after his contract expired, at the end of the 2007–08 season.
In August 2008, 35-year-old Mora returned to Levante, freshly relegated into the second level. He served as backup in his debut campaign and third-choice in the second, playing no official matches in the latter as the Valencian Community side returned to the first division, after a two-year absence; he retired from the game shortly after, remaining with the club in directorial capacities.
