Hi, I am Stasya aka La Rusa.
Me and my partner , Mike , are the owner of this small magical bed and breakfast. We live here in Barra de Potosi most of the year, and hopefully will have a chance to personally greet you and welcome you to Hacienda la Rusa.
The rhythms of our bed and breakfast revolve around peace, zen, happiness, animal welfare and green practices: rescuing, sterlizations, recycling, using renewable resources as much as possible, minimizing our environmental impact in every decision we make, supporting and interacting with the local community.

Barra de Potosi is a rural, rustic and authentic mexican fishing village, 30 minutes and a world away from the major resort city of Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo. Barra de Potosi is remote, basic and simple; the right place for a visitor with a taste for a cultural adventure and untouched natural beauty!
Barra de Potosi beach Playa Blanca is a beautiful 10 miles long stretch of yellow sand. Barra de Potosi lagoon is a sanctuary with over 200 species of birds, insects, lizards...
If you love adventure, nature and Mexico, this is the place to go and We are looking forward to meeting you here! La Rusa

DIY project at Hacienda La Rusa



 some of you know I am quite into recycling upcycling and all that wonderful stuff... So here is .... Ta..Tam... - my first ever oil candle ... Materials used : old sock wick, vegetable oil, a few drops of essential oil, jam jar, and key ring to hold the wick. 10 mins and candle is ready... well, it burns more like a fire ring, I guess I need to work on a different wick...

barra de potosi, mexico



Experience rural Mexico, experience the most beautiful beach without the crowds in this under-the-radar spot for nature and beach lovers

If you are looking to get away from civilization and share a wild, romantic adventure with your loved one – Barra de Potosi is your place. Hacienda la Rusa is a secluded, low-key, and very private, slice of heaven, which consists of 4 tropical bungalows. Nested in a small working fishing village between the ancient ruins, jungle, dunes and the unspoilt lagoon of Potosi, Hacienda la Rusa boasts lush tropical vegetation and ever-warm waters of the Pacific.

Instead of a standard hotel room with a standard hotel smell, accommodations at Hacienda are your own private thatched roof bungalow. Each bungalow is absolutely different,one thing is similar is the attention to details, quiet elegance and classical simplicity.

Just imagine what it would be like to enjoy your margaritas on the deck, share a romantic dinner under the stars, and listen to the murmur of waves caressing the shore.
