Maybe some more time would be good. Also, perhaps adding in some extra bits to the hints, such as for Guatemala: "forest in Nahuatl." Adding the language the name comes from could actually help for a lot of these clues.

Definitely more time. Otherwise, this quiz was much easier than I made it.

It's Antigua and Barbuda, not Barbusa. Great idea, though.

Fun idea, but way too little time.
