When the front of the pack were paragliding from Alto Hospicio, they landed on PLAYA BRAVA, that is why the clue said "Find your partner, they will be paragliding to one of Iquique's beaches and you'll have to be brave to get there" Playa Brava would be something like Brave Beach.

BUT when the back of the pack, Jason, Brandon, Hoskote and Tim landed, they did it on a different beach called PLAYA HUAIQUIQUE. It probably didn't affect the outcome of the race but is really bugging me, specially if the clue said something about Brave Beach.

The second batch of teams got a different clue which told them to go to Huaiquique beach.

Are you sure? I was wondering because I could tell the back of the pack did the paragliding with a different company than the first one. Maybe the second company had Huaiquique Beach as a usual landing spot.

Pretty sure, both clues are shown in the episode.

OH! Didn't notice it, I'll check later I guess, thank you, such a minor detail was messing with my mind for some reason.

theschnauzers:
The idea of having to use a different company and a different landing spot for the same roadblock task is unusual. I don't recall ever hearing or seeing something like that before. Which makes the fact that we were shown the different information even more unusual.

Clue shown when Brandon&Adam were on-screen
You were right, they were directly sent to Huaiquique Beach.
This is a little bit weird.

I can confirm there were at least 2 paragliding companies, one was OASISFLY, this was tweeted that day:

@leslie_vega_ Es Amazing Race ....con un hermetismo tal, que @oasisfly no contesta el telefono

Is TAR, with such secrecy than @oasisfly doesn't answer the phone.

Oasisfly is a paragliding company.

They were involved in the front of the pack. (Trust me on this one)

Then we have "Parapente Ikike" or "Parapente Iquique" I think they are related,  their websites have the same pics and the same description, "El latigo" is the nickname of one of their pilots and is seen in the back of the pack... not sure if there is more than that... the landing spot is still a mystery to me...
