Continuity mistake: When Cortes comes to the El Dorado island, he sees that Miguel and Tulio's footprints lead directly from the boat to the jungle. But this is not what happened. Miguel and Tulio arrived to the island, bumped into two skeletons, ran back to the boat, walked around the beach for a while, and THEN went into the jungle. This is what the footprints should have shown.
Trivia: Just after the two main characters stow away on the ship, the movie cuts to a nighttime shot that firstly shows the moon, then pans down to the barrels. The moon shown is the same moon that Dreamworks (the company backing the movie) uses for their logo.
Trivia: In the original script Miguel & Tulio were much more close, calling each other names like "darling", and becoming much more frustrated with each other when Chel came between them. The producers and other executives decided to remove these pet names and other references from the movie, but on some subtitles the pet names are still visible.
