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

barra de potosi beach



Wander dirt streets and then hire a horse and ride along the beach. To really escape people, hire a fisherman to take you to the more remote beaches where rush hour equates to an incoming flock of blue-footed boobies.

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...
