Caps 23, 30, 36, 37, 38, 48, 51, 52 and 53 are in the stairs to climb to the top of the Chapultepeque hill, where is located the Church of San Cristobal.


This is a cap from Google of the same stair but from its base:

And back...

They arrive to the "Cañón del Sumidero" and receive the clue: Board a kayak and row to the Amikuu park pier, then travel by foot to the museum.

Braian & Karina are on the kayak when the friends arrive. It's a kayak race!

Darío & Esther are thrill for the place!

Braian & Karina first at the dock and head to the Museum. Friends close in second.

Clue: Last task. Decypher a 4 numbers code. Similar challenge than in TAR11 All Stars finale, only two questions to answer for each member. Memory challenge for first team mate: Question 1: in which PS Toya have with her more than one greeter. Question 2: how many teams were on third place in leg 2. For the second: number of transports used on the race and the name of countries visited on the race minus the number of capitals.

All are having troubles with the code. BTW Dario & Esther catch the other two teams.

A lot of tension in the air. All teams are changing members without having the right code.

Tobias had three numbers right but can't find the last. Karina is crying. This is cruel man. Tobias finally have it right!

Final clue: make your way on foot to the park amphithatre, the finish line.

The other two teams found the codes. And it's a race to the finish line under the rain.

Tobias slips and fell to the ground.

And the moment arrives...

Tobias fell to the ground.

Toya is waiting for them alone in the rain.

After six countries, 14 cities and more than 12.000 km, they are the winners of TARLA!  :cheer:  :conf: :cheer: :conf: :hearts:

They are on the ground, under the rain celebrating. They cannot believe it.

Dario & Esther are in second place. They say that it was a spiritual race for them, that things can be done, the limits are made only for them. They won 20 thousand dollars courtesy of Scotiabank. They can fulfill their dream  :yess:

Braian & Karina in third place. They say they were happy. They took notes of everything but missed some things. They have a prize too: a trip for 4 to Disney in Orlando, Florida.

WTF! Space Channel You SUCK!

During two commercial breaks the race kept going while the commercial were airing, Esther fell to the ground and they went to a commercial break and when they came back Dario&Esther were getting their clue for carrying the logs, What happened? Did Esther died and was replaced or something? WTF? And then the last commercial while all the teams were getting their last clue and were running to the finish line Ezequiel felt to the ground and they went to commercial and when they came back out of nowhere Ezequiel&Tobias were standing next to Toya and then on the ground hugging WTF? I was so lost and angry...

I'm just not happy right now, I don't care who won the race, But you just block my view from the show WTF?!

I read and heard something different, What was the number of the team who came in 3rd in Leg 2... I know because I thought of who cares about the number of a different team?, a random number that you are giving to a random team in the race, that only purpose is to designate the backpack...

Edit: Also in TAR23 and TARLA5 both finish line were covered by the rain... interesting...

I agree, how on earth they could answer that clue? it´s ridiculous, who´s going to remember or take notes of that?. Also, Was it right they allowed Eze and Tobias to take a taxi to the museum after they found they missed a picture? it looked like the taxi took them back to "La Casa" too, I need to watch the episode again but I though they went from the museum to the market to La Casa on foot...they also allowed Esther to carry the bundle of wood in a wrong way after paramedics assist her...

Thanks for the correction. Things were happening so fast that I had to wait until Dario & Esther started the task to write the second group of questions in the post.

Do you want to talk about coincidences? Both finals had only 1 Roadblock. Both finals had an active route marker involving a travel by boats. Both finals had a task that needed physical strengh to complete - climbing the stairs and climbing the glacier -. Both finals had all teams rowing from one point to another. Both finals had a memory challenge as the previous task before the Pit Stop.

I agree, how on earth they could answer that clue? it´s ridiculous, who´s going to remember or take notes of that?.

Are you surprise by those things? We are talking about the same franchise that allowed a team member who lost his passport go to his country's consulate to get a new one - against one of the major rules of The Amazing Race - and keep racing and eventually win the season. After that, any thing can happen.

I think this was a very good finale, although it looked extremely physical.The final challenge was cool.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Yeah! i really liked the memory challenge, and the questions were quite hard to answer... This task changed all positions and the winner was not the most physically strong team, but the one who payed more attention along the race. This challenge definitely costed Braian & Karina US$250,000 (and even $US 20,000), because they went from first at that point to worst.

I'm really happy that the Uruguayans at least got some money for their dream (having a baby  :cmas26)

Not surprised but bothered. I think the Edisons from season 2 were eliminated because of that (taking a taxi instead of a bus or going by foot, I can´t remember).

Overall it was a great season. Hopefully it will be renewed for a sixth season. Despite the minor kinks I really liked the finale.

Yes it was. And I can say that it was better than TAR23 because of the fact that the dropping task sealed the fate of the race, and in the TARLA finale you didn't know who was going to win until the end (in fact, the leading of the race changed at least three times).

I will admit it was a more dynamic finale, there was more room to struggle, messed up, get tired, but the inclution of the phone task about taking pictures in every location they would recieve a clue just killed it for me, it was unnecesary, thanks to that, it didn't feel as a finale for me, thanks to that everything else felt underwhelming until they reach the memory task that I will say it was a really cool task involving the events of the race, except for the question about the number of a certain team and the fact that the editing didn't actually show us proof that the numbers were right, like giving us a quick flashbak with footage from the race...
