Your adventure and solution starts here:
You start at the entrance to the ruins. You can go left and right.
Pick up the odd ruin piece in the bush. It looks like a head.
Look at the symbols on the statue.
It has an arrow going from bottom to top, so read the @'s from bottom up:
left, left, left, right, right, left, right. We will use this pattern later.
Go right again. You are now at the stacked rock formation.
Pick up the stick on the left.
Look at the stacked rocks. From left to right: 2, 5, 3. We will use this numbers later.
Go back left.
Use the stick to retrieve the crowbar.
Go forward to arrive at the dam.
Put the ruin pole head on the pole on the left.
Now you can walk to the center of the dam.
Go to the center and adjust the 3 sliders as per the stacked rocks hint: 2,5,3:
The door will open and you can take the blue bean.
Move the center panel down.
Take the circle coin.
Go back down. Then left and left again to arrive where you started.
Use the crowbar on the rock to the right of the door. The arrow branch points to it.
With the rock gone, use the blue been in the opening made for it.
The door will open. Enter.
At the top you will see the same shape as per the symbol where you got the pole head.
So use the directions you observed there:
Go left, left, left, right, right, left, right.
You will arrive here:

You will see a hexagon shape on the wall. Zoom in on the shape and open the lid.
Remember the position of each number. We will use this later.
Zoom back out.
Go right again.
You will see a circle with 6 triangles (as per the previous hint!)
Zoom in on it.
Notice that these triangles are pointing outward. (The hint pointed inwards)
So look at the hint to see in which direction the triangle is pointing and match with this puzzle.
You need to tap the triangles in order from 1 to 6:
If correct, the center will open.
Use the crowbar to retrieve the 3rd coin.
Look at the face above the door.

Go back left.
Use the machete to cut the tree roots.
