A product of hometown CD Numancia's youth system, Mario first appeared with its first team during 2002–03's second division – two games – then played 34 times scoring three goals in the 2007–08 season as the Soria side returned to La Liga after a three-year absence.
On 31 August 2008, four years after making his top flight debut, Mario netted the only goal as Numancia shock-defeated FC Barcelona at home. It would be his only in the campaign, as the team was immediately relegated back.
After only 13 league matches out of 42 in 2010–11 (one complete), 26-year-old Mario was released by Numancia, signing with Real Unión in the third level. He did not settle with any club or in any country in the following years, representing Olympiakos Nicosia, Baku FC, SD Tarazona and Jaguares de Córdoba.
On 3 July 2015, Mario joined Club Blooming in the Liga de Fútbol Profesional Boliviano. On 12 August, the team won its first Copa Cine Center after defeating Club Jorge Wilstermann 4–0 in the final, and he scored the opening goal.
