Fabio Vásquez Castaño was a Colombian rebel and revolutionary who was trained by Fidel Castro regime during the 1960s. He was one of the original founders of the Colombian guerrilla group ELN. The ELN movement began in 1964 when a group of students, inspired by Che Guevara and led by Fabio Vásquez, returned from their training in Cuba. Following the death of Vásquez, the ELN was led by a series of priests until the emergence of its present leader, Antonio García.
