Márcio Gesteira da Silva also known as Márcio Carioca (born May 2, 1983 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) is a Brazilian football player.

His strength on the ball, accurate finishing and pace made him a well known name in the northern states of Brazil. He enjoyed success at Brazilian side Ceara, before moving to Portuguese side Paços de Ferreira on a two year deal. On February 1, 2008 he was released by the club.

In 2008, he trialled with Australian A-League club Brisbane Roar FC but was rejected for failing to impress in trial matches and also due to his lack of fitness.
