Step back in time to a place filled with romance, music and laughter and enjoy the sanctuary of your own private mini-hacienda. Hotel Hacienda La Rusa has a few rustic, delightful and comfortable palapa roofed casitas - bugalows set in a breathtaking lush tropical garden of hibiscus, jasmine, roses and bougainvilleas.

The beach is a stone throw away. During the low season when the village is quiet, you will fall asleep to the sound of roaring waves. During the holidays, every day in the village is a fiesta, parties and music.

Wander the sands, swim, snorkel, hike the jungle or sit back next to the pool with a delicious margarita La Rusa and listen to the birds. Barra de Potosi is so close to Zihuatanejo and hundreds of years behind with its wonders of nature: dolphins and whales, frigatebirds, osprey, turtles and exotic vegetation play against that limpid lagoon, those marble sands and the sunsets of pink and gold.

Bungalow Betsey

Bungalow Betsy proudly carries the name of the previous owner - Betsy Johnson, a famous New Yorker, a fashion designer best known for her feminine and whimsical designs, who has created this charming hotel. 

Stasya aka La Rusa, a new owner of the Hacienda, resorted this room, but kept it pretty much the same as Betsy did, and named it after the talented and beautiful woman who fell in love with this little village and created this dream.

This is the room where Betsy Johnson stays when visiting Barra de Potosi.

Entering bungalow Betsy is like walking into a Technicolored, kitsch fantasy of Mexico, heavily steeped in Johnson's original pop-diva style: photos of Betsy and other celebrities who stayed here, patterned fabrics and glittery antique European chandeliers are set against confectionery color fuchsia; pillows are embroidered with religious icons; and wildly patterned traditional Mexican Indian skirts are thrown over wicker chairs. Personal items, photos, antiques and market finds, much of which were cleared out of Betsy Johnson's New York apartment were trucked down across the border, are still scattered throughout the room.

Bungalow Betsy is offered for rent daily or weekly - 70 USD a night.
