Teams must drive themselves to Cafayate Town Square and wait for a chasqui who will give them their next clue.

Choice A: Boil My Water
Teams would have to travel to one of three nearby small villages and grab equipment from a pickup truck to build a solar kitchen. Once the oven is completed, they have to put a kettle full of water into the middle of the dish and wait for it to come to a boil and whistle before the solar master can give them their next clue.

Bopper & Mark, Brendon & Rachel, Dave & Cherie, Elliot & Andrew, Joey & Danny, Kerri & Stacy, Nary & Jamie, Rachel & Dave, and Vanessa & Ralph chose this task.

Choice B: Light My Fire
Teams would have to travel to a nearby river where they have to gather 40 pieces of firewood and clay, load it onto a donkey.Then they must deliver their goods 1 mile to a local pottery workshop called Taller "El Obelisco" where the potter will give them their next clue.

Only Art & JJ chose this task.

Teams must travel by bus to Buenos Aires. Once there, teams must travel by taxi to Mercado de Hacienda de Liniers to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform the Roadblock would have to go to a cattle auction and listen to the auctioneer give the total weight of the cattle in the pen. Teams then have to calculate the average weight of a head of cattle in the pen, without using a calculator, and give the number to a gaucho. If the auctioneer moves onto another pen before they get to the gaucho, they would have to start over with the next pen. Once they give the correct answer, the gaucho will give teams their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel by taxi to El Gomero to check in.

For coming in first place, Rachel & Dave won a trip for two to Grenada, provided by Travelocity.
