    There are five keys in total to find but the very first one you can access with limited skills and story progression is in the lower entrance to the Templo de Jade. After escaping the Prison de Corazon you'll have everything you need. Leave the village of Pantanillo in Los Manglares to the right and access the temple through the entrance below the dimension bridge and to the right. You will pollo glide over an acid pool just before entering so you know it's the right one.

    You'll now begin a viciously paced platforming section that can be quite difficult. The key is to keep moving at full speed but it is possible in one or two sections to go "too fast". The sliding dimension bands should keep you away from the lava if you maintain the proper pace. If you think you're falling behind, remember you can switch to a chicken to run faster and catch up. As @Schinderdiv mentioned in the comments, you can run through this section as X'tabay since she is faster than Juan it will prevent the need to switch to a chicken to catch up.

    For the vertical conveyor belts, @sm4k mentioned in the comments you do not need to jump at the top as the belts will launch you into the air. I personally did jump but this could be an alternate method for those that want a few less button presses during this sequence.

    You'll run, jump and Eagle Boost to the right, then left, then right and will need to transform into a chicken after jumping down a larger ledge to continue. Then you'll continue right, then left, then right, then left before turning into a chicken again for the small space and chicken gliding right afterwards. A few more jumps and Eagle Boosts and you'll reach the end with the egg. Punch it a few times to get the key and the achievement will pop.

    SchinderdivI suggest using Xtabay for that area. She runs much faster than Juan so you'll need to transform between human and chicken form far less. Constantly having to change forms in this area was really throwing me off... After I switched to Xtabay I got through that area in less than 10 minutes. I got the idea from here -

    sm4kAnother tip - I didn't initially realize that you SHOULD NOT jump at the top of the vertical conveyor belts. I kept trying to double-jump back over the correct way and that eats up too much time. Just let the vertical conveyor belts toss you into the air and double-jump/eagle boost your way in the correct direction from there.

    Pmalone6@Schinderdiv I can see that being helpful and although I didn't use it, I will add it to the solution in case others are thrown off by the switching.

    @sm4k I did actually jump off the vertical conveyor belts but by you saying you don't have to could help others by avoiding a few extra button presses so I will add that as well.

    Mister BudsAlthough it's irrelevant if you're going for the full completion, just thought I'd mention that this achievement unlocked for me after getting the one story based piece.

    Pmalone6@Mister Buds that's true as any of the key pieces will unlock this achievement and one of them is story based as you mentioned. This solution just shows the earliest possible key piece to go for, thanks!
