I spent a long time not getting #5 for Europe and thinking that it must be some unexpected country with an intriguing reason for being on the list.

It was not.

Quite surprised not to see Saudi Arabia, given the amount of people going there on pilgrimage every year

According to Wikipedia, there are only about 2.35 million pilgrims per year, 600,000 of which are Saudi citizens and not international tourists. I'm kinda surprised that this number isn't higher.

Got them all with 1:06 remaining at 11:48:39 PM on February 10, 2019, increasing my point total by 5 to 796. I was surprised India was not on the list, though the remaining answers were not surprising. Turkey was the last answer I guessed.

Interesting to see Cuba rounding out the top 5 in North America given that the 300 million Americans 90 miles to its north have such limited or onerous travel access.

The source of the data for this quiz stems from 2017. The updated 2018 report from the same publication doesn't have any data on Cuba for the subsequent year.

The Washington Post reported a 40% drop in American tourism from the year before. It seems like Cuba really experienced a spike in tourism in 2016 but that has since quickly abated at least in part due to the new administration in Washington.

Yep. Under the Obama administration, tourism greatly increased as relations were bettered. But under Trump, relations have soured and The US has increased travel restrictions.
