Re: Go Vacation Tips Achievements FAQ Help Tricks Hints Cheat Codes Strategy Guide

The secret cave in the Marine resort is a bit tricky to find. To find it, you first have to be familiar with the ATV park (I believe it's called Wild Hills Off-Road Park) and you need an ATV. The park is pretty huge, but one section of the track is split up by a small rock wall even though both paths lead to the same huge jump. If you've found that then head in the OPPOSITE direction of the huge jump. You'll find another ramp and to the right of it will be a huge rock wall. This wall will have a section that is smaller than the rest of it and a person will be standing on it. You have to jump off of the ramp and over the gap in the wall. You'll find yourself in a small grove that doesn't seem very special, but if you ride towards the far side and you'll fall into a large crevice. This will get you the pathfinder award and will get you into the crystal cave, which has a treasure chest in it.

Other Pathfinder Locations:

City Resort: Directly below the three UFO-shaped buildings should be a dip in the ground that leads into a building. This building will have lit-up floor panels that turn different colors and make musical noises when you walk over them. This gets you the pathfinder award.

Snow Resort: This one is very tricky, just like the marine resort. One slope on the left side of the mountain (If you're starting from the top. It's the right side on the mini-map) has a name that has something to do with space and is right after you pass the observatory. It will have numerous elevated rock platforms that you can jump from and earn an achievement. However, completely ignore those platforms and stick to the ground on the left side. You'll be passing under numerous arches due to the rock platforms, but always stick to the left side wall! Eventually, the path will split into the main slope and a small side path on the left. Take the left path and it will get very narrow, but you'll end up in a cave. This cave is similar to Bigfoot Canyon from the past two games in the series. It will have a photo shoot, a treasure chest, and a bungee jump activity.

Mountain Resort: Go to Shanghar Castle in the lake and follow the path towards the back end. You'll pass the path to the docks and a another path back around towards the front of the castle. Just after you pass the second path, turn to the right. You may notice a number of platforms that scale the wall of the castle. Jump from one platform to the next and you'll end up on the stone roof, then onto the red shingle roof. From the red shingle roof you should see a tower with a treasure chest on it and a platform on the structure NEXT to the tower. Jump onto that platform (If you miss you'll have to restart the castle climbing) and then onto the platform that circles around the tower. Making it to the top will earn you the pathfinder award and a treasure chest!

"Jumped Off a Cliff" Locations:

Marine Resort: If you go past the ATV jump activity in the Off-Road park, then you'll find yourself driving along the edge of a cliff that overlooks the beach. Keep driving until you find a section jutting out in front of Pirate Rock (the bungee jump area). This cliff will have in ancient sword sticking out of the ground. Jump off that cliff to earn the award.

Mountain Resort: Jump off the Otti Macrae Falls (or whatever it's called). That's the biggest waterfall in the resort and you can easily warp there from the pause menu. As a side note, when swimming off of the falls, it is possible to jump just before you fall off and land on the bridge far down below. That must hurt your feet...

Snow Resort: If you start at the top of the mountain and go down, take the path on the right. I believe that there are two more intersections after that. I know that you take a left on one of them (sorry, remembering is tough). This will eventually bring you two a huge ramp that comes to a point in between two rock pillars. Go off of the ramp. Warning: That jump is INSANE!

City Resort: I don't really remember this one, so bear with me... I believe you either:
- Grind the entire Giant's Heel street and go off of the HUGE rail jump there (that earns you another award, by the way!).
- Grind up the space shuttle (not the UFO), which lands you on another rail that takes you by a building with a treasure chest and another rail jutting out. Jump onto that rail (which is very tricky), but it will probably take you away from the treasure. Instead it will take you to the top of the Wheel Slider building (behind the person for the Wheel Slider activity). You can choose to ride down the building and go off of the ramp there or take the rail back to the treasure chest. The ramp may get you the award. No promises!
-Another possibility is near the La Vacanza Mall. Nearby is another sort of shopping center with ramps that are black with orange railings. They are pretty much walking paths, but they go up. Follow them to the top and look around. A ramp will replace one of the railings and will take you onto a roof with a treasure chest. That roof will also have another, even bigger ramp that may earn you the award.

When looking for this part, I found it helpful to bring a dog along. The reason for this is that when you get to the wall with the people standing on it, my pup stopped in the middle of the road and started barking furiously. She also had an exclamation mark over her head. If not for her, I would have drove right past the wall! Thanks captain456 for posting this! It really helped me out.

1. Near the hotel on the opposite side of Trumela lake from the castle, there should be a house with a small ramp pointing directly at it. Use the ramp to jump over the house.

2. Near the ruins (north side) is a very steep bumpy slope. Use an off road car to drive up the hill (I recommend turning off the rumble on your remote if it's on). Once you get to the top, you should ge the great performance.

3. On the south side of the train tunnel (very left side of the map), there should be a row of three houses. Use a horse to jump on top of all three of them.

4. On the north side of the castle, there should be an area which allows you to jump on a row of "islands" in Trumela Lake. Jump to the very last one with an off road car and wait there for the ferry to come underneath where you are. Carefully drive on top (yes on top of) the ferry to get the last great performance.

Re: Go Vacation Tips Achievements FAQ Help Tricks Hints Cheat Codes Strategy Guide

Ill tell you how to get to a very secret place in the marine resort.

Use your map to go to the boat dock closest to the ruins. Select the ATV. Go right,(to the ramp) over a small jump, through a cave/overhang, right, over a bridge, and then left, up a hill into wild hills offroad park. Follow the right-hand wall until you see two people standing on a gap in the wall (Daytime). Use the jump that is nearby to jump up, into a forest. Head right, and into a deep crevasse. Continue along the cave until you get to a back wall with a hole in. DO NOT GO THROUGH THAT HOLE, THAT IS THE EXIT, AND IT IS ONE WAY DUE TO A FALL. (that's from chapter cheats) There is a chest on the right near the hole to get out the cave. get of the ATV and go to the sandy part by swimming. you turn to where the chest is and see giant stairs go up the stairs (you need to jump up) and use common sense to get to the chest. then go back to ATV, get on and go through the hole. it takes you back to sunshine beach.
By the way, this gets you path finder as well.

for a pathfinder at the marine resort you need to have a marine bike . then you will see a tunnel out in the distance go to it and under it then keep going off to the right that is where one of the treasures is. Its straight past the parasailing person.
