Since the previous leg was a No-Rest Leg, teams immediately departed from the Pit Stop to continue racing.

Teams must drive themselves to Mérida, Mexico. Upon arrival, teams must make their way to Palacio Municipal de Santa Lucía to find their next clue.

At Palacio Municipal de Santa Lucía, teams would have the option to U-Turn a team, with two slots available. Pako & Mori used the first slot of the U-Turn on Lauren & Steph. Heath & Toni used the second slot of the U-Turn on Tiffany & Cynthia

Since Lauren & Steph completed the Chorus Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Catcus Detour before continuing.

Since Tiffany & Cynthia completed the Cactus Detour, they would be forced to backtrack and complete the Chorus Detour before continuing.

Choice A: Cactus
Teams had to make five cactus tacos to receive their next clue.

Angel & Frankie, Chelsea & Jamus, Heath & Toni, Kelly & Georgia, and Tiffany & Cynthia chose this task.

Choice B: Chorus
Teams had to sing "La Cucaracha" with a mariachi band to receive their next clue.

Lauren & Steph and Pako & Mori chose this task.

Teams must make their way to Cementario General de Mérida where each team member had to paint a Day of the Dead calavera design onto their partner's face to receive their next clue.

"Who's strung out?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock had to count the number of pink-coloured papel picado to receive their next clue.
