Here's a thought for a Starting Line Task:

Teams open their first clue that cryptically tells them a hint based off one color of the first country's flag ("You will go to a land where the skies are BLUE", "People will turn GREEN with envy when they find out you are going here!", etc, etc)

Teams will then have to correctly pick the country's flag out of a large array of national flags placed throughout a field (note: not the large flags from S9, but much smaller, handheld sized flags. The kind you could put on a table/desk. They would be placed on walls, kind of like S15 starting line task).

What teams don't know is that they each received different clues about the flag (if the location was Ecuador: some teams would get a clue about red, others about blue, and the rest about yellow).

They would have to figure out that fact, find a way to work together, and still have to search throughout an assortment of flags with the same color combination.

I think it would be a very challenging and exciting task.

I'm personally digging the idea of having Latin America at the end of the race (and not just for one leg, either).

12 teams, 13 legs

Leg 1: Los Angeles, U.S.A. to Reykjavik, Iceland (EL- 12th place)
Leg 2: Reykjavik, Iceland to Rome, Italy to Vatican City (Fast Forward; EL- 11th place)
Leg 3: Rome to Naples, Italy (EL- 10th place)
Leg 4: Naples, Italy to Budapest, Hungary (Switchback; EL- 9th place)
Leg 5: Budapest, Hungary to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (Double U-turn; EL- 8th place)
Leg 6: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Agra, India (KRL- 7 teams)
Leg 7: Agra, India to Kathmandu, Nepal (Fast Forward; EL- 7th place)
Leg 8: Kathmandu, Nepal to Manila, Philippines (NEL- 6th place)
Leg 9: Manila, Philippines to Melbourne, Australia (EL- 6th place)
Leg 10: Melbourne, Australia to Cuzco, Peru (Double U-turn; EL- 5th place)
Leg 11: Cuzco, Peru to Guayaquil, Ecuador (NEL- 4th place)
Leg 12: Guayaquil to Galapagos Islands, Ecuador (EL-4th place)
Leg 13: Ecuador to Belmopan, Belize to New Orleans, U.S.A. (Finale)

Key:
EL- Elimination Leg
NEL- Non Elimination Leg
KRL- Keep Racing Leg

6 continents, 13 countries, 2 new (Nepal and Belize)

I personally miss the final leg having a penultimate destination (Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Canada, France) before heading to the Final City and would love to see them hit some of the countries that would otherwise get neglected because they're too close.

Would be great if every couple start from a different place. Obviously, there should be a similar difficulty between sites, and distance to the airport or country to visit. It would be a different way to start the program.
I had thought also that in one episode, the teams were to one country or another according to their order of arrival at the airport. It is clear that there should also be a difficulty and a similar difficulty. It's crazy, I know, and not be more than one episode, but it would be funny and new, yeah!? :)
Teams would be found Phil on a television or something, he can't divided in two. hahah

Both options would be great, but in the same city maybe it will be more easy for the production.

I'm bored. New route:

1- Lake Union, Seattle (U.S) -> Bay Islands Department, Honduras.

2- Tegucigalpa, Honduras -> Nuuk, Greenland

3- Uummannaq, Greenland

4- Uummannaq, Greenland -> Reykjavík, Iceland

5- Haukadalur, Iceland -> Warsaw, Poland

6- Warsaw, Poland -> Andorra la Vella, Andorra

7- Andorra la Vella, Andorra -> Nuakchot, Mauritania

8- Nuakchot, Mauritania -> Malanje, Angola

9- Malanje, Angola -> Naypyidaw, Myanmar

10- Bago, Myanmar

11- Bago, Myanmar -> Davao City, Philippines

12- Tagum City, Philippines -> Palau, Micronesia

13- Palau, Micronesia -> Juneau, Alaska (U.S)

Cuba is impossible due to the United States Embargo against Cuba. They can't do "business" with them, which would include visiting there and filming for a reality TV show.

For what it's worth, the US government has restarted the notion of people-to-people licensing. Theoretically WRP could work with one of the travel companies that provide services for American tourism in Cuba and build a leg around the guidelines of the Treasury Department, much in the same way that WRP worked with the Seychelles tourism board to build that country's leg in TAR 16.

In practice, and especially after the controversy of the leg in Hanoi this past season, I don't see Cuba being visited for a while.
also it is possible.... u just need to get up to canada or another country first.... as well as obtain proper visas and all that jazz

And Monte Carlo, although would be new, is not a country in it's own right - it's part of the wider principality of Monaco.

Bring Rachel & Dave back for the next all-star, then eliminate them 1st.

This is weird, but I'd love to see a Father/Daughter team where the Daughter is bratty, spoiled, and all ever since teenage years and the Father wants to reconnect with her.

Similar to Duke & Lauren but it would be nice to see a team like this go far and have their relationship re-evaluated.
