Fodor's Review

Guardalavaca is part of the county of Banes (pronounced BAH-nays). Castro married his first wife at the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Caridad on the town's Plaza Martí. Fulgencio Batista, the dictator Castro eventually toppled, was born here in 1901. But Banes is best known for its archaeological treasures, many of which are exhibited in its Museo Indocubano.
