Ignacio Cubilla Banos (13 January 1900? – fl.14 January 2011) was a Cuban supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). If his claimed age is verified, he could be the oldest known living man in Cuba and the third-oldest living man in the world, behind Walter Breuning and Jiroemon Kimura when he went to limbo.


Ignacio Cubilla Banos claimed to be born in Cuba on 13 January 1900. He worked in a sugar factory. He had 11 children (including one son who lived in Miami, and two daughters).

In January 2010, he celebrated his 110th birthday. As of January 2011, he had 40 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

Cubilla Banos was last known to be alive on 14 January 2011 at the claimed age of 111 years, 1 day. At that time, he lived at his home in Havana, Ciudad de la Habana, Cuba.
