La vecina (English title: The Neighbor) is a Mexican comedy-telenovela produced by Lucero Suárez for Televisa.[2][3] It is the remake of the telenovela La costeña y el cachaco produced in 2003 by RCN TV.[4] In the United States, Univision broadcast La Vecina from June 22, 2015 to March 3, 2016.


Production of the telenovela began in 2014,[5] but it was not until February that its showing was confirmed.[6]


Sara ends a long courtship with Cheo and is fired from the hotel where she worked in Progreso. Faced with this situation, she decides to leave to San Gaspar, a small town, for a few days with her uncle Simón an aeronautical engineer who is devoted to agriculture; and with Bruno who falls for Laura the wife of Pedro the local leader of the plunderers of gasoline.

In CONATROL, company dedicated to the distribution of petroleum; the Director-General, Mr. Uribe decides to send the Eng. Antonio Andrade to the plant in San Gaspar, due to excessive theft of gasoline in the area. Antonio agrees to leave immediately, postponed his wedding with Isabel daughter of millionaire Guillermo Cisneros.

In San Gaspar, father Vicente, uncle of Sara, is the leader of "The winged" local football team whose rival is Fidel, the Commander in Chief of San Gaspar, leader of "The Gunners." Both scramble to take over "jaibolera" the maximum trophy of the local tournament.

Ricardo takes advantage of Antonio's absence in the Federal District to take his place, even to seducing Isabel who is engaged to Antonio, and also allying himself in secret with Pedro to pass confidential information about CONATROL.

The action binds Sara and Antonio first as neighbors and then when it comes to CONATROL to ask for work. Sara and Antonio come together during a weekend on an unexpected journey. A great attraction develops between the two despite their very different personalities.
