Baquero was born in Barcelona, the daughter of Ivan Baquero and Julia Macías. She attended the American School of Barcelona, where she learned to speak fluent English, Spanish and Catalan. She graduated in 2012.
Baquero started acting professionally at the age of eight, playing a few small roles in a number of films before being cast in Pan's Labyrinth in 2006. The most notable of these early films is Fragile, in which she played a minor role alongside Calista Flockhart and Richard Roxburgh. She was in a number of other films including Romasanta and Rottweiler. She has also appeared on Spanish television on a few occasions.
From about 1000 young actresses, Baquero was picked to play the role of Ofelia in Pan's Labyrinth. The role of Ofelia was originally intended for a girl of the age of 8, but the script was altered to accommodate Baquero, who was 11 at the time. Afterward, she worked in various projects while still attending school.
In 2009, she played the title role in John Connolly's horror film, The New Daughter, with Kevin Costner, marking her first American role.
In 2015, Baquero was cast in The Shannara Chronicles, an MTV television adaptation of the Shannara novel series by Terry Brooks, in which she plays the role of Eretria; the show premiered in January 2016.
