On 23 July 2010 during the Apertura 2010, Aquino debuted for Cruz Azul under coach Enrique Meza in a 0–3 win over Estudiantes Tecos, coming in as a 57th-minute substitute for Alejandro Vela. He scored his first goal in the Primera División on 24 October 2010 during match-day 13 of the Apertura 2010 against Morelia in a 1–1 draw at Estadio Morelos. He gradually cemented his place into the team's starting eleven as the main right-winger, going on to play for two more years at Cruz Azul, amassing over 90 appearances for the club, scoring seven goals.
Aquino was called up by Luis Fernando Tena to play in the 2011 Pan American Games, in which he played in all six games and won the Gold Medal match against Argentina. He scored his first unofficial international goal in a friendly against Club León on 5 July 2012 in a 1–1 draw.
He made his official debut with the Mexico national football team on 4 July 2011 against Chile in the 2011 Copa América. He played in all three group matches.
The Mexico national team that played the 2011 Copa América was an under-22 squad composed of 5 "over-age" players. FIFA has classified the team as the official "senior squad" but it could be said that his debut with the senior squad was on 11 November 2011 against Serbia in a 2–0 friendly, he coming into play at the 86th minute for Andrés Guardado. He made his next appearance on 25 January 2012 in another friendly against Venezuela where he was attributed as adding creativity to Mexico's offense. He entered the game on the 56th minute while the game was tied 1–1, and was involved in the last two goals that Mexico scored to win the match 3–1.
On 28 January 2013 it was announced that Aquino was transferred to Villarreal CF of Spain. He made his league debut coming on as a 67th-minute substitute for Moi Gómez in a 1–1 draw against Hércules CF.
On 19 August 2013, Javier Aquino made his debut in La Liga, entering as a substitute in the second half of the match against Almería. He collaborated towards the final 3–2 victory for Villarreal, with an assist to fellow Mexican teammate Giovani dos Santos.
On 25 August 2014, Villarreal announced that Aquino would be loaned out for the 2014–15 season to Rayo Vallecano. He made his league debut against Atlético Madrid on 25 August, and played all 90 minutes of the match which ended in a 0–0 draw.
Aquino was initially omitted from the final 23 man roster that would participate in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, however after Luis Montes suffered a severe leg injury, Aquino would be called up to round out the 23 player at the 2014 World Cup.
After a discreet performance with Rayo Vallecano in the Spanish 2014-15 season, in June 2015, it was announced that he would join Mexican team Tigres UANL. With Tigres, he played the 2015 Copa Libertadores finals against River Plate. Tigres lost by 3-0 in Argentina after a 0-0 draw in Mexico. In December 2015, Tigres won the Mexico Apertura 2015 finals against Pumas UNAM, in December 2016 the Apertura 2016 finals against América and in December 2017 the Apertura 2017 finals against Monterrey; Aquino played a key role for the team in the championships.
In May 2018 he was named in Mexico’s preliminary 28-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, and in June 2018, he was named in Mexico's 23-man squad for the World Cup.
On May 29 2019, Aquino announced his retirement from the internacional scene commenting that he talked with the new head coach Gerardo Martino and asked him to not be called anymore for the Mexican national team's matches, despite "El Tata" having considered Aquino for the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
