The map is double-sided, showing Ecuador with the northern and the Amazonian part of Peru on one side, with on the reverse central and southern Peru plus the adjoining parts of Bolivia with La Paz and Cordillera Real. Vivid relief shading, numerous spot heights and names of mountain ranges present the topography. National parks and other protected area are marked.

Road network distinguishes between highways in good and poor condition and includes partially paved roads and cart tracks, with distances shown on main routes. Railway lines and local airports are included, and the map also shows internal administrative boundaries with names of the provinces. Numerous places of interest are prominently marked. Latitude and longitude margin ticks are at 2° intervals. The map has no index of localities. Map legend includes English.

Street plans highlighting main places of interest cover central areas of Quito (with an enlargement for the Old Town), Lima (with a separate plan for the Miraflores area), Cusco and Arequipa. An enlargement shows the Cusco - Machu Picchu area with numerous Inca sites and main treks in the Cordillera Vilcamamba, with a separate plan of the ruins at Machu Picchu.
