It appears that a map of Los Santos - included in the Special and Collector's Editions of Grand Theft Auto 5 - bears several secret messages, which only become visible under UV light.

The message on the reverse of the map contains directions to a specific location in the game, and says to bring $500,000 cash. 
The full message reads:

Trevor Philips Enterprises. Weaponry, narcotics, intimidation and casual wear.

Lago Zan Cudo. Great ocean, highway north, through north chumash, 0.5 miles past Raton Canyon.
<- when guard rail ends, follow the dirt road down the docks.
Bring $500,000 cash. Xxxxx

We’ll leave it up to you to find out what is at the end of the trail, but if you want to get a better look at the map and its secret messages, here's a video for you:

There is also a message on the front of the map with a rudimentary drawing of an alien with the caption: “They’re here!” So keep your eyes on the skies when playing GTA V at night, as you could well encounter some extra-terrestrial beings.

Below is a gallery of all the pictures:
