Teams must make their way on foot to Playa Maracas, where one team member had to swim to a buoy that had their clue attached to it.

Teams must make their way to Grecia and find La Iglesia de Metal, where an altar boy will hand them their next clue.

Choice A: Brush
Teams must travel 10 miles to Taller Eloy Alfaro in Sarchí and painted two cartwheels. Once there, they must choose two of these harshly painted cartwheels, then they followed the pattern on a painted section to finish decorating the wheel. When the artist approved their work, they would receive their clue.

The Bransen, Godlewski and Weaver Families chose this task.

Choice B: Barrel
Teams must travel 10 miles to Ingenio La Argentina (a Sugarcane factory) where they had to load a tractor with a 1 tonne of harvested sugarcane. Then, they transported them 6 miles to a rum factory of Fabrica Nacional de Licores. After delivering the cane, they searched a warehouse to find a hidden marked barrel rack among dozens of rum barrels which contained their clue.

The Linz and Paolo Families chose this task.

Teams must fly to Phoenix, Arizona. Upon arrival, teams must take a marked car to Bondurant Superkart School where they will find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to get into a go-kart known as a Superkart. They had to drive a grueling 50-lap course around the race track, with only a brief pit stop being given on the 25th lap. Once they had finished all 50 laps, they would get their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must drive themselves to Fort McDowell Adventures to check in.

For coming in first place, the Godlewski Family won a trip to Belize from Travelocity.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would be taken into the air in a fighter plane. Once they were airborne, they would take over the controls and had to follow the pilot's instructions to complete a 360° loop. Once they successfully pulled off the maneuver, they receive their next clue.

Teams drive themselves to the Grand Canyon and find Lipan Point to find their next clue.

Choice A: Bearing
Teams must choose one of five colored cards, upon which were written different compass coordinates. Teams have to use a provided compass to follow the coordinates to three different hidden boxes, each with more coordinates. Once they have a total of four cards of the same color, they could exchange them for their next clue.

Only the Weaver Family chose this task.

Choice B: Bailing
Teams must pick a sunken boat. Using only the provided tools and their hands, teams must bail water out of the boat until it is light enough to move. Once teams have moved the boat from the bottom of the river and onto the shore, teams got their next clue.

The Bransen, Godlewski, Linz, and Paolo Families chose this task.

Teams must drive themselves to Antelope Point at Lake Powell and take a boat to a houseboat to check in.

For coming in first place, the Godlewski Family won a A Jay-Flight 27 B.H. Travel Trailer compliments of Jayco.
