The cast of Vecinos from season one
The cast of Vecinos from season one


  • César Bono as Francisco Ríos "Frankie Rivers", Lorena's husband and Benito's father. He is an ex actor who spends his time writing scripts for movies on a typewriter. Francisco has been socially vacant for most of Benito's childhood, as his main focus is on his unrealistic goal of theatrical glory. He mainly spends his bonding moments with Benito rambling about his potential acting career as a young child, with Benito's constant line that he doesn't want to be an actor. He always boasts about his movie "La Toalla del Mojado" (The Wet Man's Towel) as the best thing he has done in his life, although it turns out that it was the only movie in which he acted. Due to his fantasies of great actor, he usually changes his real name to "Frankie Rivers". All the scripts he's written end up being plagiarisms from other films. He is usually abusive with those who help him, and is economically dependent of his wife Lorena and further on in later seasons of his son Benito. He still has some misunderstandings and friction with his neighbors. Luis is the one who usually helps him the most given Luis's considerate and helpful personality. Fransisco lives in apartment 101 with his wife and son, and at the end of season 5 he leaves Lorena after an argument.
  • Eduardo España as Germán Martínez. He is the building's doorman, responsible for providing security and keeping the building clean, but also for making the neighborhood's coexistence generate a number of conflicts and misunderstandings. He spends most of his time playing or lounging around, which is why neighbors yell at him and threaten to get him fired. Although he gets along with most of the neighbors, he is more friends with Benito, Pedro and Jorjais, with whom he plays and has fun. Their biggest problem is that they have to be very gossipy and boastful, reasons why they make meters in anyone. His characteristic expression is to correct the word "goalkeeper" by "janitor".
  • Macaria as Magdalena Pérez de Lopez, Arturo's wife and Alejandra and Marcos's mother. She is a presumptuous woman obsessed with the opinions of others about her. She feels desires for greatness and boasts of many goods, money invested abroad, and fine and expensive items, although her husband Arturo or one of the neighbors highlights her true economic situation. Her ideas of harming the neighbors always carry a consequence such as receiving fines, embargoes and teasing from the neighbors when her ideas lose control. Her arrogance is a consequence of being called the most hated in the building. She lives in apartment 301 with her husband Arturo, her daughter Alejandra, her son-in-law Rocko and her grandson Morrison.
  • Polo Ortín as Don Roque Balboa, Vanessa's grandfather. He is a retired soldier who still remembers the moments lived in the army. He usually tries to look serious and disciplined, but his clumsiness and lack of sanity is evident, especially when trying to communicate with his plush bear, whom he calls "Rambo." Most neighbors often tease him for his old age, especially Pedro. He always mentions military strategies for everyday family situations. His characteristic is that he is usually accompanied by his Rambo plush bear for any occasion, and he likes to eat campechanas. He lived in apartment 202 with his granddaughter Vanesa. Before the series returned to television, Ortín had died, and therefore Don Roque doesn't appear in season 4, though the first episode paid tribute and was dedicated to him, causing the character to be presumed dead, other than that he left his plush bear to Pedro according to his will. This would be confirmed when Vanessa returns in season 7 with her grandfather's old things and will to everyone.
  • Mayrín Villanueva as Silvia Olvera, She is a single woman obsessed with getting married and showing her parents she can be independent. She works as an ethics teacher in a high school and occasionally gives regularization classes to some children. Since entering the building, she has many problems with most of the neighbors. Despite this, she gets along with Vanesa and Luis, who once showed him how in love he is with her. Although it is very insecure, it is very beautiful for many who know it. Their attempts to get a boyfriend always fail because of the personalities of their friends or that their neighbors harm them. Its main feature is that it has a statue of San Antonio de Padua in her apartment, which is upside down (as a ritual to find love). She lives in apartment 201
  • Ana Bertha Espín as Lorena Ríos de Rivers, Frankie's wife and Benito's mother. She is an optimistic housewife and sometimes stubborn. She is an incredibly gossipy woman, who also gets the gossip from Germán. Like her husband, she is abusive to those who help, although she gets to the extreme with her son Benito, who enrolls in many commercial catalogs at the place of study or plays like any child. His father is the one who financially supports the family that Frankie doesn't want to work. She is the only one in the building who is not afraid of Magdalena when facing her personally. His characteristic is that he always refers to her husband Frankie as "Pancho". She lives in apartment 101 with her husband Frankie and her son Benito.
  • Moisés Suárez as Arturo López, Magdalena's husband and Alejandra and Marcos's father. He is a mature man and househusband. He is always ignored when trying to impose his authority or wanting to communicate with his children. Because of his wife, he goes through all kinds of economic troubles (damage due to waste or plans to upset the neighbors). Many of the neighbors make fun of being manipulated by Magdalena. Many times it has been proven that Arturo does not earn much money in his work, which is why López Pérez is poorer than Germán and Jorjais. Its main characteristic is that it always dialogues with someone, using the phrase "As the chaviza says ...". He lives in apartment 301 with his wife Magdalena and their children Alejandra and Marcos.
  • Darío Ripoll as Luis San Román, He is a seller and promoter of articles. He share his apartment with his roommate and best friend Pedro. Trying to solve problems with other neighbors, bad things always happen to him. It tends to be something neurotic. The neighbors always gossip about him and Pedro being a gay couple. Although he usually goes out with many women, he always has a special sense for his neighbor Silvia. Apparently, it is the best paid of the neighbors. In addition, along with Silvia, Vanesa and Benito, he is one of the few sensible and prudent of the building. One of its most important characteristics is that whenever you get into trouble, take out your asthma inhaler. He lives in apartment 102 with Pedro.
  • Pablo Valentín as Pedro Medina, He is Luis's roommate and best friend since high school. He is a rather idle, unobliged and immature man who deliberately spends his friend's money on food, treats and video games. The neighbors always talk about him and Luis being a gay couple. He always talks about an affair with Luis's sister, which unleashes anger on his friend. He usually plays jokes and nicknames everyone. In the meetings of neighbors (in multiple occasions), he mocks Don Roque although later he does not like that this one takes revenge. He is a Germán and Benito's friend. He lives in apartment 102 with Luis.
  • Danny Perea as Alejandra López, Arturo and Magdalena's daughter, Marcos's sister, Rocko's wife and Morrison's mother. She is a  dark girl, little social and sometimes intractable, visible in his personality, way of dressing and behaving, and in his musical tastes, especially where he does not respect the authority of his parents. Its imposing character makes no one contradict it. She is convenient as the smartest woman in the building. It is opposite to his brother Marcos. She lives in apartment 301 with her parents Arturo and Magdalena, her husband Rocko and her son Morrison.
  • Vadhir Derbez as Marco López, Arturo and Magdalena's son and Alejandra's brother. He is a boy  strawberry, haughty, spoiled, silly and gossip, fan of commercial music and attentive to everything that is fashionable. He is very similar to his mother in many ways. He lived in the department 301 with his parents Arturo and Magdalena and his sister Alejandra, until for reasons of study and for modifying with his sister higher qualifications of his academic history, his mother enrolls him in an exchange contest and ends up going to continue studying in Angangueo, Michoacán where his mother also studied.
  • Manuel "Flaco" Ibáñez as Jorjais, a homeless, but nonetheless clever man. Jorjais uses pathos to manipulate others into giving him food, money, jobs, etc. His skill, or rather, willingness, to work often overshadows Germán, leading to conflict between the characters.
  • Octavio Ocaña as Benito Ríos, Lorena and Frankie's son. He is a 20-year-old boy and an innocent 8-year-old boy who likes to study and dreams of being doctor, but his parents force him to prepare to be actor and therefore he is forced to attend to cassettes, almost always disguised as animals or some character. He is usually the one who humiliates Frankie the most. It is proven to be the most cunning of the building. Being the only child in the building, he is very prudent and sensible as is Luis, Silvia and Vanesa. He is a friend of Pedro and Germán. He lives in department 101 with his parents Frankie and Lorena, because for reasons of study, Benito is enrolled against his will in a school of actors. After the series was renewed, Ocaña returns as Benito.
  • Roxana Castellanos as Vanessa Balboa, Don Roque's granddaughter. She is a veterinarian and a hardcore pet lover. She constantly puts animals into his grandfather's apartment without him knowing. It also seems to be a bit slow thinking. Despite this, she is very cheerful and is just as sensible as Luis, Silvia and Benito. Its biggest feature is its jokes that are usually bad or somewhat complex to understand for certain neighbors. She lived in department 202 with her grandfather Roque, although it was never revealed why he stopped appearing in the series. Returns to the building in the season 7.
  • Ahrid Hannaley as Yesenia "La Yeyis" Treviño, Arturo and Magdalena's niece. Yeyis is a naive but sweet girl who grew in a wealthy household and holds no prejudices. She's invited to live with the Lopez when Marco leaves to study abroad and her parents decide to take an extended vacation. While Alejandra considers her a moron and a nuisance, Yeyis believes them to be best friends. She befriends and eventually starts a relationship with Alejandra's friend and bandmate Piloto, much to Alejandra's annoyance. She lived in apartment 301 with her uncles Arturo and Magdalena and her cousin Alejandra, as she leaves after her parents take her home.
  • Luis Gerardo Méndez as Piloto, Alejandra's friend and bandmate, vocalist for her rock band. Piloto is a dimwitted boy who dresses in punk fashion but is anything but. He befriends Yeyis in a plot to squeeze money out of her but eventually falls for her, going as far as being willing to give up his friendship with Alejandra to remain with Yeyis.
  • Carla Zuckerman as Patricia "Pato" Alcantara, is a mischievous little girl who replaces Benito when he finds a way to run away from home by exploiting a student exchange program. Unlike Benito, Pato isn't forced to go on auditions and instead spends most of her spare time playing pranks on her neighbors, her favorite target being Germán, whom she often frames as culprit of her worst misdeeds.
  • Markin López as Rocko, Alejandra's husband and Morrison's father. Like her, he is a dark boy. Complicates the life of his father-in-law Arturo by not working and being maintained by him. He lives in apartment 301 with his parents-in-law Arturo and Magdalena, his wife Alejandra and his son Morrison.
  • Said Casab as Morrison, Alejandra and Rocko's son. He is an intelligent 4-year-old boy who, like his parents, wears black with very striking hairstyles, like a dark child, although, being very involved in issues of technology and social networks. He lives in apartment 301 with his grandparents Arturo and Magdalena and his parents Alejandra and Rocko.
  • Yolanda Martínez as Jovita, Luis's mother. She is an old lady who arrives at Luis's apartment in season 5 to bring order, especially to Pedro. She is a very religious woman, and goes to the saints for problems in the building, or to ask for Pedro to bathe or look for work. It is worth mentioning that months after filming of season 5 ended, Martínez had passed away, causing Luis to be forced to return to the apartment in season 6.
  • Gina Holguín as Cris, Silvia's friend.
  • Talitha Becker as Liz, Benito's girlfriend.
  • Édgar Vivar as Hipólito Menchaca

Recurring and guests

  • María Prado as Doña Cata "Catita" Balboa, a heavily religious nurse hired by Don Roque's son to take care of him after Vanessa moves out. At first she's somewhat antagonistic towards Don Roque because she's always trying to take away his sweets and talk him out of doing foolish things, but they eventually develop a romantic relationship over their surprisingly similar tastes and hobbies and get married.
  • Ian Rubio de la Cerda as Luis "Luisito" San Roman II, a toddler that Luis and Pedro raise together after his mother, Luis' ex-girlfriend, abandons him with them, claiming he's Luis' son. It's eventually discovered that Luisito is in reality the son of his mother's ex-boyfriend Ro and he's taken away from his adoptive father.
  • María Rubio as Doña Socorro "Doña Soco", is the owner of the building. Doña Soco is a ruthless businesswoman with no qualms about tossing the neighbors out if it benefits her.
  • Pedro Romo as Don Serafio, the local handyman who charges reasonable prices and always does a good job. Don Serafio is often frustrated by the neighbors' willingness to listen to Germán when he claims he could do the same job quicker and for a lower price, and almost always ends up coming back to fix everything when Germán fails miserably.
  • Claudia Bollat as Gudelia, Germán's on-and-off girlfriend who works as a maid in a neighboring building.
  • Benjamín Rivero as Neto, the handsome and muscular owner of the convenience store next door to the building. Neto often flirts with Silvia, who flirts right back.


When Eugenio Derbez traveled to Spain in 2005, he saw a TV series named Aquí no hay quien viva, which features the same kinds of problems that people have in the barrios. He thought a Mexican remake would be a good idea, so he created Vecinos.[1] In March 2017 it was announced that the series would return for a fourth season.[6] The fourth season premiered on August 28, 2017.[7][8] The series has been renewed for a fifth season, that premiered on 24 March 2019.[9][10] In January 2019 executive producer Elias Solorio announced on his Twitter account that filming of the sixth season had begun.[11][12] Filming of the ninth season began in June 2020.[13][14]
