Born in Pamplona, Navarre, Santamaría was a product of CA Osasuna's youth ranks, and was transferred to UD Las Palmas in the 2006 summer. In the Canary Islands, he spent his first two seasons with the B-side, making his debut with the first team on 23 February 2008 in a second division match against Celta de Vigo in which he saved a penalty kick, helping to a 1–0 home win.
On 12 August 2010, after terminating his Las Palmas contract, Santamaría joined Girona FC in the second level, replacing Albert Jorquera who retired earlier in the summer. He continued to compete in that tier in the following years, representing SD Ponferradina (two spells), Osasuna and RCD Mallorca.
His brother, Mikel, was also groomed at Osasuna.
