The Fast Forward instructions were given to teams at the beginning of the leg. Its instructions are unknown, as no team was shown performing it.
Choice A: Ropes
Teams must take a shuttle bus to the top of the Ursa cliffs. Once at the top, they must rappel 300 ft (91 m) down to the shore below.
Choice B: Slopes
Teams must hike down the sloping trails to the shoreline to get their next clue.
Only Flo & Zach chose this task.
Teams must find the Viajes Flandria travel agency and sign up for a charter bus to Fez. Each bus can only carry three teams and leave an hour apart.
"For someone with a keen sense of direction but a not so keen sense of smell."

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:
Neither member of Michael & Kathy were shown performing the Roadblock.
