City of Vilcabama

Run into the first room and kill the 4 wolves lurking in there. Jump around to avoid their attacks and keep firing. There are multiple exits from this room. Take whichever one you want as they all end up at the same place eventually. Kill all the wolves and bats you encounter. Some bats are lurking in the ceiling so look UP often. One wolf guards a medkit hidden in the bushes. Eventually you will end up in a large room with a pool in the middle.

There is a wooden trough along one wall. If you go near this wall a large bear comes charging out. Dodge his attacks and kill him quickly then enter the room he came out of. Climb up onto the ledge above the stable and get the medkit. Now return to the pool room and go for a swim.

Dive in and go to the T intersection and turn right. Make a U-turn to the left when you reach the pillars and throw the wood lever to open a secret door in another area. If you still have enough air (about half) then swim to the opposite side of the pillar room into the brightly lit area. Throw the other wooden switch to open a hatch above you. Surface and breath. Exit the water and get
SECRET #1 - a medkit.

Throw the switch to open door and return to the main room. Dive into the pool again and this time swim to the T and turn left. Follow the passage to a left turn and follow until you surface into a room with serpent fountains. Exit the pool and go through the secret door you opened early (remember that lever) and get
SECRET #2 - a medkit and magnum clips. Return to the main pool room and surface.

Find the door with the switch (looks like zebra stripes) and open the door. Climb the wooden stairs and make the tricky jump at the top. You will be looking across at an alcove made of skulls. Below you is a ledge of collapsible panels. Drop down and run and jump over to this alcove. This is tricky and if you don't do it the first time you don't get another chance. It's only a medkit so don't worry if you don't make it. Drop into the room below (if you didn't land there by accident) and find the blue stone with the two indentations.

Using the action key and the UP arrow Lara can push this block into the wall. It takes several pushes to move it all the way. If you missed the large jump and really want that medkit in the skull alcove you can use the action key and down arrow to pull the block into the room and use it to climb into the alcove.

Once you are in the next room kill the bat and get the Silver Key and the Gold Idol. Using the block you pushed in, climb up and onto the wooden ledge. Kill the 2 bats in the rafters. Run around the corner and kill 2 more bats. Drop into the passage and turn left. You should now be back in the main pool room. Turn left again to find the locked door. The action key will unlock the door.

Darts line the walls of this room and you will take at least one hit UNLESS you do a dive. Just run and jump and hit action while in mid- air and you will hit the ground rolling - no damage!

You are now in a large area with a temple at the far end and 5 wolves with bad attitudes scattered about. Kill them as they charge doing all that fancy jumping to avoid their fangs. Enter the temple through the left door. Follow the passage into a pool room with ledges on the walls. Climb the stairs and being the jumping process to go from ledge to ledge. Climb the stairs and kill the bat then make a long jump across the top of this tower. Climb some more stairs and kill another bat. Find and use the wall switch to open the temple's right door. Get the medkit then go to the window.

Looking down at the ledge find the shotgun shells. Execute the safety drop onto the roof and get the shells then drop to the red roof and get the medkit. Drop once more to the ground and enter the right door. This is another room with water and ledges and collapsing floor tiles. Go to the left and stair-step up the ledges along this wall. At the top kill the bat, climb the stairs and use the switch to open the middle door of the temple. Go outside and execute a series of safety drops to the ground. Enter the middle door.

A long tunnel with a series of swinging blades is your next challenge. Just use simple timing to get past these guys. You will reach a gate with a bear behind it. Use the switch. The floor drops out from under you and you go for another swim. Swim forward and up and into the small tunnel on the right. The tunnel leads to stairs which leads to a switch that opens the gate you were at moments ago and the exit gate. Go to one of the windows and dive into the pool below (or do a safety drop). You have to kill the bear and you can't shoot from the water. The bear will follow you and attack as you try to exit the pool. I found it easier to drop to the ground and blast him. You can also run around the pool keeping the bear at a safe distance.

Once the bear is dead go to the locked door. To the left of this door is an open door. Enter the door and go up the stairs to the switch room. There is a passage opposite the switch which leads to a room with Uzi clips. Return to the pool room with the dead bear and use the Gold Idol to unlock the EXIT.
