The Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan 5e

The ancient ruined city of Tamoacha is familiar to a select few scholars and fortune seekers, who know of it but not always exactly where it is. Even more secluded, lying somewhere within or beneath the ruins, is a hidden shrine said to be dedicated to Zotzilaha, the vampire god of the underworld. Adventurers who catch wind of the place are likely to find its lure irresistible.

Remake of the AD&D module by the same name.

Zuishin has played this adventure and would recommend it.

note: This review assumes the adventure is run from the bottom-up (as is intended) The Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan is a deadly, mechanically intricate, oldschool dungeon that has many unique creatures and rooms that are cleverly designed. That being said, most of the rooms are filled with an assortment of hazards, traps, and scenery that; while extremely rewarding when run smoothly, can be very daunting to prepare for as a Dungeon Master.

If you are a DM who enjoys challenging your party with mechanically rigorous environments then this is a good dungeon to run. The dungeon (and ruined city above) can be placed anywhere, though they draw heavily on Mayan and Aztec mythology so if you're comfortable with that existing in your world, then it won't be a problem. This dungeon is a museum-style dungeon where there are plenty of things to look at, but touching said things is a bad idea. With that in mind, I think if your party has reckless characters who enjoy roleplaying them as such, they are going to have a deadly but very fun time (and by the same token, a risk-averse party won't be able to enjoy all of the deadly toys in the dungeon).
