In his following and final season with the club, 2012–13, he scored 4 goals in 32 appearances as they finished sixth. He departed Defensa y Justicia in 2013 and subsequently joined Ascenso MX club Lobos BUAP. He remained with the Mexicans for one season before leaving as he made 21 league appearances and scored two goals.[1]

Godoy Cruz became his fourth club in 2014 but, after four months and 15 games/1 goal, García left to join another Argentine team, Unión Santa Fe. His first match for his latest team came on 15 February 2015 against Huracán.[1][2]
