Batista fled Cuba following the Cuban Revolution and settled in New York City. In the United States, he financed the creation of the magazine Exilio, intended for publishing young writers in exile. He then founded the Colibrí publishing house in Madrid on the proposal of Jesús Díaz. He lived there for most of the remainder of his life.
