1. I don't know about the tourist buses, but the regular bus we took was fine. There's not really a bus station in the cemetery area, but a collection of nearby bus offices.

2. I'm not sure when they start leaving, but between the various companies, they run quite frequently. We just showed up and bought tickets to leave about an hour later. We could have left sooner, but it would have been in a very full bus or 'colectivo' (shared minivan).

3. I believe the first bus left at 9am. There are also some afternoon buses and colectivos to the border, where you can theoretically find onward local transportation. If you want to catch the morning bus, it's best to buy your tickets at least the day before.

If you are used to buses in bolivia, stick with the regular buses. I don't think there is a difference with any buses to Copacabana. In fact I heard some folk say they got stuck with a tourist ticket price and were on the same bus as we were.

2. I don't know the time buses leave for copacabana, but we caught one mid day.(around 11) i know there were buses before ours though.

3. I can't answer as I was coming from the other direction only (I made a return trip to Copacabana though).
