Bienvenido al Comienzo de Nuestro para Siempre!


We are so pleased and excited to invite you to share a few dias magicos of celebration and frivolity in one of the most beautiful corners of the world, la Playa el Cuco in the San Miguel region of El Salvador.  

We chose El Salvador because it holds a very special place in our hearts. It's Alfonso's birthplace, and for the past 10 years we have hosted many friends and created invaluable memories in El Cuco - a small coastal village which la familia Rosales has called home for many years.


We are endlessly grateful to Alfonso Sr. for once again offering his home, Al Andalus, as the venue for this most special of celebrations, our wedding. 

The Venue

Playa El Cuco, El Salvador

    El Cuco is a remote fishing village located on the southeastern crest of El Salvador. At the heart of the village is a small downtown with a couple of marisquerías and some bodegas where you can buy local produce, a bottle of rum, or some cold cervezas - you know, the bare essentials. Stretching just over a couple of miles, las playas are lined with untouched jungle, private villas, boutique hotels and oceanside restaurants where the fish come straight from sea!

     The neighboring beaches are renowned for world-class surfing, but the gentle, constant waves of Playa El Cuco are perfect for first time surfers.  The shoreline is so wide and gradual that as the tide recedes the sand becomes a mirror that accentuates the most vibrant sunsets you've ever seen. Around our date in early March, the sun rises over the eastern waters of el Golfo de Fonseca, and sets into the western pacific, an incredible vista where you see both sunrise and sunset over the sparkling waves!

    We cannot imagine a more magical setting to share with our family and closest friends!

Al Andalus


Navigating El Cuco is a bit different than most people are used to. Instead of addresses, houses are known by name. The Rosales' house is called Villa Al Andalus. It is located at the delta of El Esterito San Román, which during high tide can sometimes bring the ocean to the stairs of the property! An avid surfer, Alfonso Sr acquired Al Andalus due to its proximity to some of the best waves in the world, and has since made it his forever home. Our family and friends gather here frequently for holidays and vacations, and it's halls are filled with love and the warmest memories. We hope that you will join us here for our biggest gathering yet, and contribute to the beautiful energy that continues to make Al Andalus the happiest of homes!  

Getting There

Planning Your Trip

You will want to book your flight to San Salvador International Airport (SAL) located just outside the capitol city. From there, El Cuco is a 2.5 hour drive/ride, 86 miles southeast. While that may seem daunting, there are plenty of options for transportation from the airport to El Cuco that will make the journey seamless. Along the way you will pass through a couple of small cities and probably pass a couple of volcanoes! 

We know that traveling to a foreign country can be intimidating, especially if you don't speak the language, and this is why we want to make it as easy for you as possible. Many Salvadorians speak English, but proper planning ahead will ensure the most carefree experience. Please look through the resources below as you plan your trip. Here you will find information on transportation from the airport, useful tips on how to prepare, what to expect, and best of all - THE ADVENTURES THAT AWAIT!! 


No events at the moment

Suggested Dress Code

El Salvador is HOT!! Even in March, expect temperatures to be in the 80s-90s, with the evenings in the 70s. 

To make our wedding day truly special, we've put together a dress code guide that captures the essence of the location and ensures everyone feels comfortable yet looks chic!


For Men: We invite our dapper gentlemen to embrace the laid-back elegance of beachside festivities. Consider opting for a lightweight linen suit paired with a breathable shirt. While ties are encouraged to add a touch of sophistication, they are by no means mandatory. 


For Women: Ladies, envision yourself in flowy dresses adorned in tropical hues that complement the vibrant atmosphere of our beach wedding. Think light fabrics that catch the ocean breeze, creating a picture-perfect moment as you join us in celebrating love. Express your individual style while keeping in mind the relaxed beach ambiance.

Additional Suggestions:

  • Sun hats, sunglasses, and light scarves are not only fashionable but also practical under the warm Salvadoran sun.

  • Consider loafers, and flat or wedge sandals for ease of walking on the sandy shores.

While we encourage a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, we kindly ask that, at least for the ceremony and reception, guests avoid wearing Hawaiian shirts and Havaiana-style (thong) sandals, and generally any item of clothing that could be described as "thong," as we aim to maintain an elevated and stylish ambiance!

Thank you for being a part of our special day! We can't wait to celebrate love, laughter, and beautiful moments with each and every one of you.
