Choice A: Shake Your Hips

Jelani & Jenny and Mike & Rochelle chose this task.

Choice B: Make Some Bricks
Teams must make their way to the Chan Chan archaeological area, where they must make twelve wet bricks from mud and sand. Once all twelve bricks are completed to the foreman's specifications, they must use a wheelbarrow to transport twelve dry bricks to a work site. Once the delivery is complete, the foreman would give them their next clue.

Hayley & Blair and Laura & Tyler chose this task.

Teams must take a taxi to the intersection of Avenida Ribera and Manco Capac in Huanchaco, where they would find their next clue.

"Who wants to ride a sea horse?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must ride a caballito de totora, which both members must first pick up and carry to the beach. The chosen member must then paddle the caballito de totora out to a buoy in the ocean to retrieve their next clue.
