LegacyEdit

Although Carta Clara was not produced for a very long time until Grupo Modelo relaunched it during 2021, its legacy remained around the state of Yucatan: Estadio Carta Clara, also known as Parque Carta Clara, remained open from 1954 to 1981 and was home to a baseball team, the Leones de Yucatan. Meanwhile, the Centro de Espectaculos Carta Clara, also known as Jardin de Espectaculos Carta Clara or simply, as Jardin Carta Clara in Merida,[4] remains open for public events.[5]
