Notes:
1: Ariel & Nora initially arrived 3rd, but they received a 4-hour penalty for refusing to complete the Speed Bump. All remaining teams checked in during this time, dropping them to last and eliminating them.
2: Miguel & Diego and Mario & Melissa each received a 1-hour penalty for not completing an additional task. As they were the last two teams remaining, Miguel & Diego were checked in with their penalty time applied to the start of the next leg, and Mario & Melissa were eliminated.
3: Casilda & Casilda initially arrived in 2nd, but received 1-hour penalty for doing the option not chosen by them on the Detour. All the other teams checked in during their penalty time, dropping them to last; however they were notified as a non-elimination leg, thus the remaining penalty time would be accessed at the start of the next leg.
4: Casilda & Casilda didn't complete the Roadblock. Already in last place, they were eliminated immediately without completing the roadblock or the penalty being applied.
5: On Leg 10, Daniel & David and Carlos & Daniel arrived at the same time at the Pit Stop, both tied in 2nd place.
6: Leg 12 was double-length, with two Detours and two Roadblocks, shown over two episodes. The placements listed in the first column reflect the order teams arrived at the leg's halfway point.
