Nice quiz! But I wanted to point two things out. There is a San Jose in California, in Silicon Valley, that is larger than the San Jose, capital of Costa Rica. I think. It's hard to find figures. But it was at least 1.2 million in numbers and the 10th largest city in USA if you go by metro population. Puerto Rico isn't a country, so while the hint about San Juan was pretty helpful, it doesn't seem to fit in with the others.

Needs way more time. I could've guessed many others if there were 10 more minutes or so.
