Notes:
1: Ariel & Nora initially arrived 3rd, but they received a 4-hour penalty for refusing to complete the Speed Bump, dropping their placement to 11th (last place), which resulted them eliminated.
2: Miguel & Diego and Mario & Melissa received 1-hour penalty each team for not completing an additional task. Since neither placements were affected, Diego & Miguel were able to check in as 7th and the start of the penalty time would instead be accessed in the next leg, and Mario & Melissa were eliminated without issuing the penalty.
3: Casilda & Casilda arrived 2nd, but received 1-hour penalty for doing the option not chosen by them on the Detour. All the other teams checked in during the penalty hour, dropping their placement to last; however they were notified as a non-elimination leg, thus the remaining penalty time would be accessed at the start of the next leg.
4: Casilda & Casilda didn't complete the Roadblock. Already in last place, they were eliminated immediately without correcting the roadblock or accessed the 4-hour penalty.
5: On Leg 10, Daniel & David and Carlos & Daniel arrived at the same time at the pit stop, both tied in 2nd place.
6: Leg 12 was double-length, with two Detours and two Roadblocks, shown over two episodes. The placements listed in the first column reflect the order teams arrived at the leg's halfway point.
