B&B Hacienda la Rusa has 2 swimming pools



2 swimming pools : one pool for relaxing and another one for exercising!
Try walking in water at the nearest indoor pool.
Water aerobics is a great exercise for many people.

With all the walking I do outside I am always surprised with how tired I am after walking a few lengths of the pool. And I can definitely feel it in all of my muscles including my arms. But the best part is that I don’t feel any pain in my joints.
Swimming can bother my neck and running bothers my hip. Because the water makes you buoyant, doing any exercise in water puts less stress on your joints and muscles than most other sports.

Playa Blanca

Our beach is perfect for walking and power walking. A couple of residents run every morning .  Walking or Running on the beach can not only be a peaceful, beautiful running experience, but it can also help become a stronger athlete, and lose quite a few calories.

Walking in sand requires a greater effort than walking on a hard surface. Your muscles and tendons will work harder as your foot moves around. Walking at a slower pace while your feet sink in sand requires more effort than walking fast or even jogging. Walking in sand requires 2.1 to 2.7 times more energy than walking on hard surfaces.

Come for a healthy tropical vacation!

The Last Best Beach - Playa Blanca


... If you are vacationing in Zihuatanejo or Ixtapa we invite you to stray just 20 minutes off the beaten path to discover authentic Mexico in all its glory; Barra de Potosi – the “Last Best Beach.” Barra de Potosi is a tiny, marginal fishing village on Playa Blanca Beach. Located to the south on Highway 200, it’s the “Last Best Beach” or southern-most beach in the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo area. The village is a short drive or bus ride away.

Barra de Potosi is best known for its tranquil lagoon, a favorite for swimmers, surfers or nature watchers. The beachfront is lined with small restaurants, “enramadas” that serve marvelous freshly-caught sea food along with traditional Mexican dishes. With hammocks, authentic Mexican food and a natural ocean environment, you can enjoy a wonderful day on the “Last Best Beach” of Barra de Potosi ...
