Cañaveral de pasiones is a Mexican telenovela produced by Humberto Zurita and Christian Bach for Televisa, and broadcast by Canal de las Estrellas in 1996.

Daniela Castro and Juan Soler star as the main protagonists, while Azela Robinson, Roberto Ballesteros, Marisol Santacruz and Angelica Aragon star as the main antagonists.

It was remade in 2012 as Abismo de pasión, produced by Angelli Nesma Medina and written by Caridad Bravo Adams.


Josefina Montero, a respectable woman, suspects that her husband, Amador, is having an affair with Margarita Faberman. In reality, Amador's affair is with Margarita's sister, Dinorah. One stormy night Amador and Dinorah plan to leave together. However, Margarita discovers this and tries to stop them. She locks Dinorah in her room at home and goes to the place Amador is waiting for Dinorah. She finds him in his car and tries to convince him to return to his family. When this fails, Amador begins to drive her back, however his car rolls over and they are killed. This further convinces everyone else that they were lovers planning to leave. To save herself, Dinorah lets everyone else believe it so. Eventually, she marries her late sister's husband, Fausto Santos. A bitter Josefina is now a widow and does everything she can to tarnish the Faberman's name.

10 years later, Fausto's daughter, Julia, has grown into a lovely woman, but she has a bad reputation thanks to Josefina. The Montero's son, Pablo, has also grown into a handsome man, returning from studying abroad. They fall in love; however, they are resisted by the feud between their families, as well as by other love interests like Juan de Dios and Gina Elizondo.

Ultimately, Dinorah's lies are exposed, through an eyewitness —the town witch Doña Remedios— and with plane tickets showing she and Amador were plotting to escape. In a fight with her husband Fausto she kills him with his shotgun. One stormy night she finds her lover Rufino, who is evading justice for his own bad deeds. They decide to escape together. This time Remedios intervenes and causes their pick-up truck to roll over, in a scene very similar to the accident years before. They survive: Rufino tries to escape on foot, but is caught; Dinorah is trapped under the overturned truck. In the hospital she realizes she lost her legs and commits suicide by cutting her wrists with scissors, telling Julia with her last dying breath she hates her for being a symbol of what she couldn't have: a child with Fausto, her true love, whom she murdered. With the truth known and their families no longer feuding, Julia and Pablo finally marry.
