This level has a lot of solutions. I have tried to include everyone I could find in here.
Gaming Time: 1 hour
4 secrets (3 have to be found), 1 weapon (Harpoon)
Dive immediately to the right. Pick up the Smugglers Key
from the ground. If you want to take the shortcut you won't need the key.)
Then dive over to the cliff on the right. There you will find a little platform. (See first picture below.)
Climb out. Climb onto the next block. Pick up the small medipack
. Jump back into the water. Dive around the cliff to the left.
Swim over to the little island. (See second picture above.) Climb up on the lowest spot at the side facing the beach. Pick up the small medipack. Take a running jump over to the sloped block at the wall. Grab the ledge and shimmy right. Pull up. Turn right and jump onto the next platform. Make a running jump towards the next one. Grab the ledge and pull up. Collect the MP5 Ammo. Jump back into the water.
Swim over to the shore and get out of the water. Run over to the palm tree.
This is where the ways part, depending on your finding the smugglers key
LW Long Way:
This will lead you through a cave, there you can find the harpoon gun and a secret. If you follow this path you won't miss any goodies.
SC Short Cut:
This is a shortcut you can take if you didn't find the key or just want to finish this level quickly without collecting all the secrets, but do not worry, you will get one bonus-secret in this level so you can still get into the bonus level without it.
SC 1: Shortcut
Behind the palm tree at the right of the hut is a chute where you can slide down. Run through the little pool. Climb up the wall on the right side. (This is where you will also end up if you have chosen to shortcut after Secret 2.)
LW 1: The Hut
Climb into the hut on the left. Use the key at the lock on the back wall. Carefully drop down through the opened trapdoor. (Lara will still lose some energy.)
Collect the crystal
. Jump down. Be careful when down in the passage, there is a black part on the right side. A trap will come shooting out of the wall. Crawl underneath it. Follow the path towards the lake. Kill the villager
sitting up on the bridge shooting poisonous arrows at you. Then kill the two crocodiles
in the lake. Jump into the water. Collect the harpoon arrows
in the middle on the right and back on the left as well as the harpoon gun
underneath the entrance. Climb back onto the platform.
LW 1: Cave
Make a running jump onto the platform ahead. Make a standing jump onto the next platform. Pull up onto the pillar. Jump up to the ceiling and monkey climb to the other side. Turn right. Jump onto the walkway there. Follow it to the end. Climb onto the block on the left. Climb further up.
Follow the path and at the end make a standing jump onto the ledge of the alcove. Crawl in. Collect the MP5-Ammo. Crawl out of the gap backwards. Climb down the wall. Let go at the lowest spot. Run back up and climb the two blocks again.
Turn around and make a running jump towards the next platform. Jump up to the ceiling and monkey climb till your above the bridge. Let go. Cross the bridge and at the end turn left. From the edge make a standing jump onto the slope. Press jump at the end of it. Follow the next platform to the end. Turn left and kill the villager
shooting arrows at you.
LW 1: Way Up
Make a running jump onto the ladder above the spikes. Grab hold and climb up. Climb into the gap. Pick up the large medipack
. Hang from the ledge. Shimmy left. Collect the crystal
and the small medipack
that has been left by the villager. Turn towards the outer edge. Look down to see another platform. Make a standing jump slightly to the side so that Lara will land in the alcove not bumping her head. Hang from the ledge and shimmy left. Pull up at the end. Turn left. From the edge make a standing jump towards the walkway. Grab the ledge and pull up. Follow the way out onto the bridge.
At the beginning of the bridge turn right. Jump over to the block and grab the ledge. (If you make a standing jump Lara will grab hold at the wall, which is climbable. If you make a running jump she reaches the ledge.)
Pull up. Turn slightly to the left and jump towards the ledge of the next block. Pull up. Continue onto the block at the wall. Pick up the grenades
. Get back onto the bridge.
(Alternatively you can slide down here. In this case pick up the walkthrough at SC 2. But you will miss a medipack and a crystal. Unless of course you collect them - have a look at the next paragraph - and return to this spot.)
LW 1: Chamber with Windows
Cross the bridge. Enter the passage on the other side. Take a step to the left, then turn around and kill the villager
quickly. Crawl under the saw blade in the left passage into the room. (Don't run towards the medipack yet or you will trigger a trap.)
Go around to the right. Press the button
you'll find there. Now collect the large medipack
and jump over to the platform in the current. (If the spikes come out you have forgotten to press the button.)
Climb up on the other side. You'll find poisoned dart trap. So crawl towards the crystal
. Collect it quickly.
(Here you can shortcut by just sliding down into the village. Pick up the walkthrough below at SC2.
Or you can again take the long way and play a little section where you have to collect three serpent stones. Pick up the walkthrough at LW2
SC 2: Shortcut
Run ahead and kill the villager
. Step onto the platform in front of the swamp on the left. Make a running jump towards the block in the swamp and grab the ledge. Pull up. (Take care, there are poisonous dart traps.)
Turn right and make a running jump towards the large medipack
in the alcove in the rocks. Collect it and return to the block in the swamp. Then jump onto the other side. (Pick up the walkthrough at the third paragraph of LW2. You have to fulfil the tasks of the first one afterwards to get the first serpent stone!)
Your objective in the next few paragraphs is to collect three Serpent Stones that are hidden in treetops and alcoves around the waterfall.
LW 2: 1st Serpent Stone (Waterfall)

Climb into the alcove in the wall. It's hidden behind some greenery. Pick up the desert eagle ammo. Return to the branch.
Jump over to the brown platform and then slide down the rock to the bottom. You end up back between the trees.
LW 2: 3rd Serpent Stone (Pillar)
Lower yourself onto the little path again and follow it back to the waterfall. Make a standing jump back onto the block in the waterfall. And then make a running jump over to the ladder. Grab hold and climb up. Shimmy into the passage on the right. Follow the path around and climb up the next ladder. (You are still underneath the third serpents stone.)

Enter the hut on the right and collect the rocket
in one corner. Get back out. The hut on the left is empty. Get into the passage behind it and shoot another villager
At The Swamp
Follow the passage. At the tree you will encounter the next villager
. Shoot him as well. Step forward till you reach the swamp. Climb onto the block on the left. From there shoot the villager
on the platform to the left. Jump over to that platform and turn the wheel

Shoot the next villager
running around there. Now run behind the hut on the left. At the water you'll meet another villager
