Section II.     Treasure Checklist


Section I. Treasure list and locations


Chapter I - Ambushed (0 treasures)

No treasures.

Chapter II - The Search for El Dorado (6 treasures)

1) Silver Mosaic Inca Earring:
From the start of the chapter, follow the left side of the river bank until a
fairly large rock is blocking your way.  Climb this rock and jump down on the
other side and the treasure should be at Nathan's feet.


2) Jeweled Silver Monkey:
This monkey is in the are where you have to push the big rock to break the
ground in order to enter the ruins.  Make your way to the first stone that
slips as you walk forward on it. Jump forward to the first pillar, turn left,
and jump to the next pillar.  The treasure is around the base of the tree.
Just in case you're still confused, stand where you had to push the rock down
and face the three pillars in the middle of the courtyard.  The treasure is on
the right pillar.

3) Decorated Gold Ring:
This treasure is where you have to shoot a barrel in order to topple a pillar.
The treasure is on the lower side (opposite the barrel and pillar).  Face the
barrel and pillar and move left along the edge, to the side with the wooden
scaffolding.  The treasure is in the very corner, between the pillar and the
edge of the gap.  It may seem as if you will fall off, but it is safe.


4) Silver Llama:
This treasure is found after opening up the floor and filling up the water so
that you can jump in and swim.  After getting out of the water, hug the right
wall and follow it into a nook where this treasure can be found.


5) Golden Inca Cup:
You can find this one in the room immediately after the dramatic collapsing of
the large wooden platform.  After the cutscene, turn around so that you can see
one of those ceramic jars that you can shoot and break.  The treasure is behind
this jar and on the body of a skeleton there.

6) Silver Turtle:
Immediately outside the temple ruins, there are four pillars.  Climb up the
shortest one and make your way across the next three.  The treasure is on the
last pillar.

Chapter III - A Surprsing Find (2 treasures)

7) Gold Tairona Pendant:
Midway through climbing up, you'll encounter your first yellow vine with red
leaves on it (this is the third vine you encounter).  Instead of swinging
across with it, stop its swinging and climb up to the top where this treasure
is waiting.


8) Gold and Turquoise Inca Earring:
This treasure can be found at the very tip of the German U-boat BEFORE entering
it.  Run past the entrance and toward the very tip.

Chapter IV - Plane-wrecked (10 treasures)

9) Silver Inca Figurine:
At the start of this chapter, turn around and face the giant tree with Nate's
parachute.  The treasure is to the right of the base of the tree.


10) Silver Fish Charm:
When you first encounter the small waterfall, turn left and head toward the
nook in the rock wall.  The treasure is behind the small tropical tree.


11) Gold Frog:
When you reach the first log crossing, drop down the ledge to the right of the
log to find this frog.


12) Intricate Gold Ring:
After killing the numerous pirates in the large open area, climb up the pillars
and follow the pillar to the end.  Jump to the platform (there should be an
exploding barrel here if you haven't shot it yet).  The treasure is in the
corner of this platform, near a small boulder.


13) Patterned Silver Ring:
In the last section before you jump over the large gated wall, head left and to
the corner where the top of the wall is partially blown out.  Climb up onto the
ledge here and grab this treasure.


14) Golden Jaguar:
This treasure is in the next area (with pirates) after the previous treasure.
After defeating the pirates, head left (opposite the next area with the large
waterfall) and you'll see a huge white tree.  The treasure is in the corner
between the huge white tree and the small white trees.


15) Silver Inca Vessel:
This cool-looking treasure is in the little section right before you discover
a section of Sullivan's crashed plane.  In this area, you have to jump from
a slanted narrow slab of rock to a slanted log.  The treasure is fairly easy
to spot: it is to the right and below the log, in the corner of the rock wall.

16) Golden Toothpick:
This one can be found immediately outside the area where Sullivan's plane
is crashed, before encountering the first wooden death trap.


17) Silver Bird Vessel:
This treasure is very easy to miss.  It is separated from the previous treasure
by a platforming section.  Once you finish the platforming section and before
you move onto the next area (containing numerous wooden death traps), head to
the right and to the cliff.  Be very careful here because you will fall off
if you move too far from the edge because there is nothing for you to hang onto


18) Silver Inca Earring:
After exiting the area with the wooden deathtraps, head forward, but make a
U-turn to the grassy ledge overlooking the area with the wooden deathtraps.
The treasure is lying in the grass here.

Chapter V - The Fortress (4 treasures)

This one can be found in the area where you first encounter pirates in this
chapter.  After defeating the pirates, go up the stairs and above the doorway
you first entered this area from.  You need to jump to the roof of the broken
stone house as shown in the pic.  The Strange Relic can be found in a corner on
the roof.

20) Silver Jaguar:
This cool cat is not too far from the Strange Relic.  After getting the Strange
Relic, run toward the large pile of rubble and stone as shown in the picture.
Find your way over this pile of rock, and head toward the last watchtower
(the structures that look out to the ocean).  The treasure will be inside


21) Gold Mosaic Inca Earring:

This treasure is between a large pile of rubble and an arch-shaped iron gate.  You can see where it is if you stand where the Strange
Relic is.  After getting the last treasure, head down to the section where this treasure is (the section before the machine gunner).
You'll have to kill 2 pirates here.  Climb over the pile of rubble shown in the
pic and grab the earring.

22) Golden Spoon:
This one is very easy to miss.  After killing the machine gunner, head up the
waterway and go into the room to the right with the torches.  There is one
pirate here guarding the area.  The spoon is behind the ammo boxes to the right
of the table (see pic).  Walk on top of the box in the corner and pick up the

Chapter VI - Unlocking the Past (4 treasures)

23) Silver Inca Mask:
When you first enter this area there will be a fight with some pirates.  After
you defeat the pirates, head up the stairs and you'll see two very large trees
with white bark.  There is one large tree growing right by the stairs, and
the other one is growing on the mossy green ledge.  The treasure is behind
the tree growing on the mossy green ledge.

24) Spanish Silver Coin:
You can grab this treasure after unlocking the door with the keys and fighting
the swarms of pirates.  Head up to the large gate at the far end of where the
gunfight took place.  Face the left side (the side with a giant white tree).
There will be a small pile of rocks there.  Climb up these rocks and hop over
the ledge for the coin.


25) Silver Tairona Pendant:
After going upstairs and defeating all the enemies, you'll have to go down a
set of broken set of stairs from which you won't be able to climb back up.
After this set of stairs is small room with some crates and ammo boxes.  The
treasure is to the right of the small set of stairs.


26) Gold Llama:
This next one can be found after defeating the small group of pirates on the
walkway overlooking the courtyard.  While making your way to your next
destination, you'll have to do some platforming.  The llama is behind the
small green trees and the pile of rubble shown in the pics.

Chapter VII - Out of the Frying Pan (0 treasures)

No treasures.

Chapter VIII - The Drowned City (2 treasures)

27) Decorated Silver Ring:
Upon entering the first area with pirates, make a right and the treasure can
be found by the small plant in the ground.


28) Silver Frog:
This amphibian can be found in what used to be a house.  This section comes
after encountering the pirate who has a grenade launcher.  The frog is around
the back corner of the house.  It is hard to describe exactly where it is so
use the pics as a reference.

Chapter IX - To the Tower (1 treasure)

29) Golden Fish Charm:
You can find this treasure in the area after getting off the jetski.
Before entering the bluish-looking tunnel at the end of this area (see pic),
head left to a wall where the treasure can be found.  It is by the dead pirate
shown in the pic.

Chapter X - The Customs House (2 treasures)

i. Housewarming party

30) Jeweled Golden Brooch:
After sliding down the metal cable, go down to the corner looking at the door
(the one you open to let Elena in) to find the brooch.  See pic for reference.

31) Silver Belt Buckle:
This treasure is after the cutscene where Nate and Elena are looking at the
customs ledger.  After killing the lone pirate with the shotgun, head all the
way up the first set of stairs you see (you may want to take out the other
pirates first) and the belt buckle will be lying in the corner.

Chapter XI - Trapped (3 treasures)

32) Spanish Gold Coin:
After the cutscene showing the boat leaving, you'll face some pirates in the
next area.  Head up the staircase that splits in two directions, and take the
right path up to a small section of a broken floor where the treasure is.


33) Silver Spanish Chalice:
This treasure is found beside the staircase opposite to where the last treasure
was.  After saving Elena on the bridge, head all the way down the stairs and to
the left where all the plants and rubble are.  The chalice can be found here.

34) Gold Coatimundi:
This coatimundi (coatimundi?) can be found after leaving the customs house and
heading into a cavern of sorts.  The treasure can be found behind a pile of
ammo boxes.

Chapter XII - Heading Upriver (0 treasures)
No treasures.

Chapter XIII - Sanctuary? (7 treasures)

35) Golden Turtle:
This one is quite easy to miss.  You can get it in two ways:
1) After getting off the jetski, jump into the water and swim to the ledge
behind the waterwheel and go behind the waterwheel.  The treasure is on the
small ledge against the broken bridge.
2) After defeating the pirates, jump from the bridge near where it's
broken, to the ledge below.


36) Silver Inca Cup:
After viewing the cutscene involving the deathtrap being made of the airplane
parts, go under the dilapidated staircase to get this treasure.  It is lying on
some rocks in the water, directly underneath the staircase.

37) Jeweled Silver Cross:
This one is found in a little room near where you shoot the large pile of
exploding barrels.

This area (after Elena opens the gate and Nate holds it open) has three
treasures, be sure to get all of them.  However, you do revisit this area later
in the game so there is a second opportunity to grab these.

38) Silver Toothpick:
This one can be found to the right of where you first enter this area.  You'll
likely need to kill all the enemies before being able to get it.  Jump over
the stone railing to get it.


39) Gold Spanish Chalice:
Starting from where you first came into this area, go down the ramp and make a
left past the large staircase, all the way to the wall, then turn left again
to the corner where the rubble is.


40) Silver Coatimundi:
Another one of these...things.  Head through the large tunnel to reach a small
little area where this coatimundi can be found in the corner.

41) Golden Cup and Cover:
This is in the room where you have to invert the torches to open the secret
passageway.  It is in the section of the room to the right of the main painting
as shown in the pic.

Chapter XIV - Going Underground (6 treasures)

42) Golden Inca Vessel:
This cool little cup is found at the very beginning of the chapter.  Head down
the stairs and make a right immediately upon entering the room.


43) Golden Skull:
This kickass item can be found in the waterfall after the previous treasure.
You'll have to pass the platforming section first before being able to reach
the waterfall.

44) Silver Snuff Box:
Another cool treasure!  This one is easy to get, you can grab it as soon as you
emerge from the previous section through the trap door in the ground.  It's in
the corner behind the trap door.

45) Silver Spanish Goblet:
After dropping down from the ladder, this fancy cup can be found behind a huge
square-shaped sarcophagus.


46) Silver Ingot:
You can find this in the section after viewing the cutscene with the villians.
Jump across the gap and drop down off the platform to the other side to get
this slab of silver.


47) Gold and Ruby Inca Mask:
Thanks to "Pristine_Condition" from the NeoGAF boards for helping me pinpoint
the location of this one.

This is the one I missed in my original run even though it's not very hidden.
This little trinket is at the very end of chapter XIV where you need to crank
a chain wheel to open the wooden door to chapter XV.  The room is extremely
small so it's easy to find this treasure.

Chapter XV - On the Trail of the Treasure (6 treasures)

48) Gold Inca Figurine:
Find this funny-looking guy as soon you step outside and begin chapter XV.
Head into the area to the right of the staircase you see in front of you.

49) Golden Bird Vessel:
Make your way to the secret gallery that Sullivan mentioned, but turn left
before going there.  Run down to the end of the broken floor to find

50) Golden Spanish Goblet:
It's easy enough to find this overpriced cup.  Once you reenter the monastery
and defeat the two guards, make a right into a small room containing this


51) Jeweled Golden Cross:
After pulling down the two keys and opening the stained glass, pick up this
treasure in the secret room before leaving the monastery.

52) Silver Skull:
This treasure is behind a small stone burial house past across the large hole
(from the movie 300?) from where you first entered this area.  It is between
the house and the wall.


53) Golden Inca Mask:
This one can be found in a cluster of graves to the right of the building
you're supposed to enter.  It is partially hidden by a few tombstones.

Chapter XVI - The Treasure Vault (2 treasures)

54) Silver Cup and Cover:
Ok so of course the treasures are opposite the way you're supposed to go
(how clever).  To get this first one, follow the right path from where you
first entered the vault.  Follow the arrows: V, then ignore II, then follow
IV up the stairs, and then follow I to the end of the path.


55) Jeweled Silver Brooch:
This tricky treasure can be had When you reach the second swinging lantern (the
one swinging in front of the IV sign).  When you reach the top of the stairs
before the lantern, stop and turn left to face the III sign on the pillar.
Aim yourself diagonally so that you jumps just to the left of the pillar.  The
jump should be successful and you can claim your prize at the end of the


56) Gold Snuff Box:
Wow, this one is extra tricky, I was actually a little stumped, but a gold
snuff box is worth the trouble.  To get this one, get to the area where there's
a I and VII sign around the rusted iron gate.  Go to the part of the railing
beside the broken section and press forward+X to climb over and hang on it.
Now jump backward to the platform where the snuff box is.  If you don't want to
die getting off the platform, then do a running jump onto the portruding block
which is underneath the part of the railing you originally jumped from.
See the pics for more details

Chapter XVII - The Heart of the Vault (0 treasures)

No treasures.

Chapter XVIII - The Bunker (1 treasure)

57) Gold Monkey Figurine:
To get this wacky-looking treasure, go all the way down the hall where the
first two mutants charge at you, then take a right all the way down the hall,
then turn left and search the pile of rubble for this treasure.

Chapter XIX - Unwelcome Guests (1 treasure)

58) Golden Seadragon Pendant:
This badass treasure can be found in the area where you fight all the guards
and the mutants at the same time around the large wooden boxes.  Climb on top
of the pile of five boxes against the back wall, then jump over to the nearest
pile of two boxes, and then finally jump to another pile of two boxes against
the back wall to claim this seadragon.  A simpler way to do this is to climb
up the side of the boxes that the treasure is on.

Chapter XX - Race to the Rescue (1 treasure)

59) Gold Ingot:
As soon you climb up the ladder, turn around and search the plant between the
large brown rock and the palm tree.

Chapter XXI - Gold and Bones (2 treasures)

60) Golden Skull Rosary:
Another badass treasure.  This one can be found in the catacombs, in the room
with the two large sarcophagi.  When you enter this room, the treasure is by
the sarcophagus on the right side of the room.


61) Sapphire and Silver Mask:
This bug-eyed treasure can be found in the room right after the previous
treasure.  Head down the stairs from the previous treasure room, and search
behind the pillar in the middle of the room.

Chapter XXII - Showdown (0 treasures)

No treasures.
