Hi, I am Stasya aka La Rusa.
Me and my partner , Mike , are the owners 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, sterilizations, 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

Enjoy Barra de Potosi & Playa Blanca - Stay at B&B Hacienda La Rusa!

There’s nothing run-of-the-mill about Hacienda La Rusa houses, Betsey Johnson and Stasya made absolutely sure of that. You will not find anything like it in the Northern Hemisphere! You’ll love the layout that’s perfectly styled to suit couples who love art, privacy, space. You’ll find the d├ęcor will lift your holiday spirits making you feel so tropically relaxed and free!

Who said that artist's retreat should be run down?!
Artists like everyone else appreciate comfort and beauty!

And there is so much to appreciate at Hacienda and Barra de Potosi... one day at a time! take your time!
