Gotita de amor (Droplet of Love) (known as Chabelita in some territories) is a Mexican telenovela produced by Nicandro Díaz González for Televisa in 1998.[1] Is a remake of 1978 Brazilian telenovela Pingo de gente.

On Monday, 3 August 1998, Canal de las Estrellas started broadcasting Gotita de amor weekdays at 4:00pm, replacing Una luz en el camino. The last episode was broadcast on Friday, 20 November 1998 with El diario de Daniela replacing it the following day.

Laura Flores and Alejandro Ibarra starred as protagonists, while Pilar Montenegro, Isaura Espinoza, María Clara Zurita, Mercedes Molto, Raúl Araiza and Miguel de León starred as main antagonist. Andrea Lagunés starred as Isabel Arredondo de Santiago, the main child character that the show's name refers to (the Droplet of Love).


Left at the door of an orphanage just a few days after birth, Isabel "Chabelita" has grown in a shady atmosphere and with lack of affection. Her short life has been even harder because of constant mistreatment she has received from the strict director of the institution.

In spite of the difficult experiences that Chabelita has lived through, her spirit is up and she is very optimistic. She has an almost magic ability to unite people, and her enthusiasm is contagious. When she was told that her father lives in the Mexico City, Chabelita escapes from the orphanage to find him.

This is the beginning of the adventures of this wonderful girl, who, while she looks for her family, brings love to all lonely and needed people whom she meets on her way.


Broadcast in other countries

The series was aired in the Philippines through ABS-CBN in 1999-2000 as Chabelita. It was also aired in Indonesia through SCTV in 1999 as Impian Chabelita, with the dubbing and the soundtrack turned into Indonesian as the Indonesian duo singer Saskia dan Geovani.
