Corazón Profundo has received generally positive reviews from critics. At About.com's Carlos Quintana opined that "I have to say the album has left me with mixed feelings. While I like the romantic vibes in this album and the more traditional sound of tracks like 'Hoy Me Desperte en Otro Lugar', I really did not enjoy some of the commercial stuff that Carlos Vives added here".[3] David Jeffries from Allmusic gave the album three and a half stars (out of five), saying to "expect nostalgic numbers and romantic songs, along with some modern, polished pop" and highlighting the new sound with the song "Como Le Gusta a Tu Cuerpo" and the smash hit "Volvi a Nacer".[4]

Corazón Profundo debuted at number one on the National-Report album chart in Colombia with first-day sales of 35,000 copies.[5] In its first week the album had sold more than 200,000 copies and was certified diamond.[6] In the United States, the album debuted at number 61 on the Billboard 200 and at number one on the Latin Albums chart, spending two weeks there.
