It'd be an excellent quizz if it weren't for the inclusion of "Guatemala City".

The "city" is not part of the proper name of the place, and it's only used when there's a need to disambiguate (which is clearly not the case in a crossword about cities). It makes no sense to put it here, and it's even worse when you require to type it. And also because it's easy that the Mystery City is guessed while trying to look for Central American capitals.

1) Following JetPunk standards, on every capitals and city quiz, it is known as "Guatemala City". It's also known on Wikipedia and many other websites as "Guatemala City" and therefore that's how it'll stay on this quiz. I have, however, changed the type in so now you don't have to type "City".

3) I have also changed the hint slightly.

4) The mystery city is not in the same letter form as Guatemala City (9,4). If you do get it, however, then that's not something I can change.

Funny that there are two B _ R _ and I couldn't get either. (This is an observation, not a complaint.)
