Carnavals in Cuba are completely unpromoted, except for Havana and Santiago.  There are hundreds of them, one in virtually every city, each at different times of the year. Frequently a fantastic experience, especially in areas with a strong population of African descent, such as Santiago, Matanzas, Havana, Guantanamo, etc.  There you can participate in tremendous congas and parades.
