Luis Antonio Álvarez Murillo (born April 13, 1991, in Mexicali), also known as El Abuelo (The Grandfather), is a Mexican athlete who competes in archery.

Álvarez was selected as a member of the Mexican male archery team to compete at the 2012 Summer Olympics at London, after winning the 2012 Archery World Cup in Ogden, United States. This was the first Olympic games for the Mexican archer. At the 2012 Olympics, in the men's individual event, he was ranked 30th after the ranking round. He then beat Yavor Khristov in the first elimination round, before being beaten by eventual gold medallist Oh Jin-Hyek in the second round.
