I found this guide to be very useful (http://nemdam.hubpages.com/hub/Far-Cry-3-Relics-Locations-Gu...), particularly as some of the relics are really well hidden. It's probably still worth buying the $500 maps for each area because they show more than just the relics.

For many of the underwater hidden relics there's often a trail of blue plants showing you the entrance/route to the relic. You can use these plants to craft Deep Dive syringes, making your task a bit easier.

Some relics will be behind doors that you have to blow up (grenade/C4) to gain access to. The doors are smooth stone with a small logo in the middle.

Many of the relics are hidden in caves which show up as a dark blue/black area on the map. The entrances are usually quite far from the map marker. More often than not if the map marker is on top of a hill with no buildings, the relic is usually in a cave nearby.
