The village was founded in 1804 with the name Hato de La Manigua, and some years later was named after a Spanish general named Guillermo Báez. Until the 1977 administrative reform, it was part of the municipality of Santa Clara.
Báez is located on a valley between the Escambray Mountains and the borders with Sancti Spíritus Province, below a hillock and east of Agabama Reservoir. Nearest village is Guaracabulla, located 5 km north, and Agabama, 11 km south.
