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


We don't rent bungalows ... 
We create memories

Hacienda La Rusa has 4 tropical and charming  guest bungalows and the owners house, 2 swimming pools, yoga terrace, outdoors patios and terraces and a magical tropical beautifully maintained blooming gardens; the property is completely walled in for privacy and security.  Our bungalows are open, charming, bright and airy. You get cathedral palapa ceilings, unique decorations, antique furniture, colonial Mexican and European twist on the beach and much more!

Hacienda la Rusa is ideally located at the entrance to Barra de Potosi on the right beach side. There is only a restaurant between us and the water. Our guests are able to walk everywhere any time of the day and night, anything our guests want from kayaks to late night dinners are right outside our gate.
