The brother of Roberto Vizcarra, Marco Vizarra played for 11 years in the Mexican League. He was a middle infielder like his brother, but often a part-timer and never a star performer, unlike Roberto.

In 1989, Marco debuted with the Torreon Cotton Dealers, hitting .234/.299/.258 in 65 games. With the same club in 1990, he was 23 for 79 with four doubles, a home run and six walks. In 1991, he batted .233/.321/.292 for Torreon. He joined Roberto on the Monterrey Industrials in 1992 and hit .259/.337/.305, followed by a .236/.308/.281 campaign in '93. In 1994, he hit .211/.304/.238 between the Industrials and the Minatitlan Oilers. He had his best season with the 1995 Reynosa Broncos, batting .294/.395.316. He hit his first home run in four years - it would also be his last.

In 1996, Vizcarra was with the Saraperos de Saltillo, putting up a line of .284/.355/.328; he had a career-high 113 hits and 11 doubles. He remained with Saltillo for his last three seasons. In 1997, he played a career-high 119 games and also set highs in at-bats (390), triples (4), RBI (41) and walks (39). He fell to .228/.299/.269. He rebounded to .272/.363/.285 in 1998 and scored a career-best 53 runs. In his last season, 1999, he was 17 for 86 with 3 doubles and 11 walks.

Overall, Marco was at .252/.335/.290 in 869 games in Mexico; he also stole 30 bases in 54 tries.
