Carlos Pérez (born 26 August 1971 in Havana) is a Cuban-Hungarian handball player, who plays for MKB Veszprém KC and the Hungarian national team.



He was born in Havana and spent his Cuban years by local team Ciudad Havana. He signed to Hungarian top club MKB Veszprém KC in 1997 and since then spent all the seasons with the club.

He obtained Hungarian citizenship in 1999 and made his debut for the national team in 2002 against Slovenia. He represented Hungary at the 2003 World Championship, where he showed his exceptional shooting skills and finished first on the goalscoring charts with 64 goals. He has also been selected to the All-Star team. He participated in the 2004 Summer Olympics a year later and finished fourth.

Despite his good performances he had to wait seven years to appear on another major tournament, this time the 2011 World Championship. As he was permitted by his club to play on three games only, Hungarian head coach Lajos Mocsai saved him for the most important matches, and he was a late call-up to replace Péter Gulyás in the squad. He was part of the 2012 Summer Olympics Hungarian squad that finished fourth.

He was voted Hungarian Handballer of the Year three times in a row between 2003–2005, and won the award once again in 2011.
