Transport from Copacabana to La Paz

Hi all,

I've been searching for some info regarding buses / minibuses / shared taxis from Copacabana to La Paz.
The thing is, we've got a plane to catch in La Paz (going to Rurrenabaque, plane leaves at 16:55) and 13:30 bus is not an option anymore. Is there a chance to leave Copacabana at around 11, get to La Paz at ±14:30, and is it enough time to get to the airport? In other words, should we stick to this plan, or get to La Paz the day before?

Thanks
d.

Border crossing to Ecuador at Agua Verdes/Huaquillas

Hello!
I will be in the south of Ecuador at Huaquillas and want to peek into Peru and add another country to my checklist. Silly, I know. I have read that immigration facilities are far apart and a hassle. I have also read the area is a free trade zone. My question is this: if I walk over the bridge and have lunch in Peru (will I need Sols?) and walk back...do they stop people and check for passport stamps?
Thanks
