With an approximate cost of $5,000,000 United States dollars, this production was praised by the critics, but was not a great success with the Mexican audience although it was in Europe, Asia, Malaysia, and Thailand. One of the reasons for its lower rating was that it was broadcast at the same time as El privilegio de amar, the most successful telenovela of rival network Televisa that year. This was the first telenovela for Ursula Pratts with TV Azteca, and also the first in 10 years after Monte Calvario in 1988.
