Calypso (1999) is a Venezuelan telenovela that was produced by and seen on Venevisión. This telenovela lasted 80 episodes and was distributed internationally by Venevisión International.


Calypso is a picturesque and prosperous Caribbean island that, on the day of San Salvador - patron saint of the island, crowns the queen of the festivities, who this year is a lovely young woman named Maria Margarita, “la Bella” (“the Beautiful”). Everyone calls her that not only because of what is obvious to the eye but also to differentiate her from her older sister, who is equally beautiful and has a similar name: Margarita Luisa, “la Grande” (“the Elder”).

However, it turns out that neither of the two Margaritas feel like celebrating today. "La Grande" is still in mourning, since exactly one year ago the sea took the life of Ernesto Lopez, the man she was going to marry. "La Bella" is sad because she has to say goodbye to Mariano Gonzalez, a modest teacher who has won her heart and is now leaving the island to never return. "La Grande" runs to the seashore in an attempt to feel closer to the man she so desperately misses. There, fate gives her the most extraordinary surprise: the swaying of the waves is carrying a man's body toward the shore. "La Grande" dives in and pulls the man out of the sea bringing him to safety. That is how Simon Vargas, who will be known on the island as “the Castaway”, regains consciousness in the arms of a beautiful woman whom he confuses with an angel.

A wonderful yet peculiar relationship develops between them as of that instant. "La Grande" feels that the prophecy of La Maga, her friend and protector, is coming true: “When the sea takes a love, it always gives back a bigger, deeper one”, but who knows if that new love will end up being destined for her sister, "la Bella"? Because inevitably, Margarita "la Bella" also falls under the spell of "the Castaway’s" sensuality, tenderness and joie de vivre. That marks the beginning of a bitter war between the two Margaritas over "the Castaway’s" love - a war that will become legend on Calypso and on many other islands in the Caribbean.
