He got off to a flyer on No. 3 Court, taking the first set 6-0 before opening up a 3-0 lead at the start of the second.
Appearing at Wimbledon for the first time, Carreno Busta then fought back from 5-2 down to take the set into a tie-break and came through 7-3 on his third set point.
Ferrer regained his composure, though, and lost just two more games in the match by taking the third and fourth sets 6-1.
Ferrer, who has reached the quarter-finals at SW19 in the last two years, will next play either British wildcard Dan Evans or Russia's Andrey Kuznetsov.
