Route Markers

The order of departure from the Statute of Virgen de La Puerta are as follows:

  1. Hayley & Blair (6:39 am)
  2. Jelani & Jenny (7:19 am)
  3. Mike & Rochelle (8:35 am)
  4. Laura & Tyler (8:48 am)

Teams must travel by taxi back to Trujillo and find "South America's largest mosaic", located outside of Universidad Nacional de Trujillo, where they must find a payaso (clown), who will hand them a magnifying glass and a picture where the tile is located. They will then use the magnifying glass to find a route marker hidden on the mosaic tiles, which they will trade to the clown for their next clue.

Choice A: Shake Your Hips
Teams must travel by taxi to La Asociación de Criadores y Propietaros de Caballos de Paso Church, where they will dress in dancing costumes and be taught the marinera dance. After they perform with approving satisfaction from a head judge, they will get their next clue.

Jelani & Jenny and Mike & Rochelle chose this task.

Choice B: Make Some Bricks
Teams must travel by taxi to the Chan Chan ruins where they'll need to make twelve wet bricks from mud and sand. Once all twelve bricks are completed to the workers' specifications, they'll then use a wheelbarrow to transport the twelve dry bricks to a work site. Once the delivery is complete, a foreman will give them their next clue.

Hayley & Blair and Laura & Tyler chose this task.

Teams must travel by taxi to the intersection of Avenida Ribera and Manco Capac in Huanchaco to find their next clue.

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock would have to, after both teammates pick up a caballito de totora and bring it to the beach, paddle the caballito de totora out to a buoy to get their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must travel on foot to Virgen del Socorro to check in.

For coming in first place, Hayley & Blair won a trip for two to Goa, India, provided by Travelocity.

This leg is a no-rest leg. Teams would check in as normal, but receive their clue to start the next leg from Phil. The team that comes in last place does not face a penalty.
