This contribution contains a GPlates digital reconstruction of the northern Andes and southern Caribbean margin for the last 90 Ma. It is built using different strain datasets fully described in “Continental Margin Response to Multiple Arc-Continent Collisions: the Northern Andes-Caribbean Margin” . Two digital reconstructions are included here: one is a rigid block reconstruction, and the other is a continuously closing polygon reconstruction digitized every one -million years. We placed the South and North American plates at the root of the reconstruction tree, so that the Andean blocks move with respect to the former, and the Caribbean Plate, and related intra-oceanic arcs with respect to the latter. These reconstructions can be used as templates to place in palinspastic space any dataset that can be represented by lines or points.
