Really surprised by a some of these- Rurrenabaque (BO), El Chalten/El Calafate (AR) and Cafayate (AR) are pretty famous towns, especially among tourists

You are right, this quiz doesn't sufficiently cover smaller tourist cities. Users of cityquiz.io and JetPunk generally prefer larger cities with higher populations. Currently, I am incorporating other data sources, such as Wikipedia page views, into the existing data. I will reset this quiz series in the near future.
