Only the VERY fittest people should even THINK about doing this trek to the Laguna Capri. I consider myself quite fit, but after doing this horrible trek to that lagoon, I realize it was ONLY doable for people like Sir Edmund Hillary or Jon Kakauer...More

Rain or shine (we had shine with clouds) I think it is absolutely worth the while to hike at least to Laguna Capri, where, if you can't get a clear view of Fitz Roy (Fils du Roi) you'll be able to "guess" its towering presence...More

We stopped by here on our way back from the Laguna de los Tres hike, on a beautiful warm sunny day. Our feet were aching from the hike, so we took off our boots and waded in the clear cold water. Heaven! You can also...More
