Plot and themesEdit

Verano de amor is the story of four teenagers who have always lived in the city of Tlacotalpan, Veracruz, Mexico. The story's message emphasizes the distinction between the importance of pursuing one's dreams and the importance of pursuing material things.[1] The show's creators chose Tlacotalpan for its setting in large part because of its natural beauty; the storyline of Verano de amor incorporates messages promoting environmentalism, an extension of Televisa's "Televisa Verde" initiative focused on the environment.[2]
