Getting from Copocabana to Uyuni?

We are travelling to Bolivia around the 19th of July. Thinking of staying in Copocabana on the way down to Uyuni. What's the best way to get from one to the other? How long is the bus/train journey?

I know it's easy enough to book trips when we get to Uyuni is a 3 day trip enough around the Salt Plains?

We need to get back to La Paz for our flight to Rio de Janeiro on the 26th July, how long is from Uyuni to La Paz?

Thanks , Nicola

The easiest is to take a bus from Copacabana to La Paz and from there a night bus to Uyuni. Nightbusses range between 30 to 50 usd return. Try Panasur (cheapest) or Turisbus (most comfortable)!! You leave La Paz around 2100 and arrive in Uyuni around 0600/0700 the next morning - same goes for the way back. Once in Uyuni try to find the touroperator called Red Planet - avoid Colque if possible!! Have a great trip:o)

Just a correction to my answer. The 2nd company is not Turisbus but Todo Turismo!!
