1I got a bus from La Serena at 4pm and arrived in Calama at 9am and then got another bus to San Pedro (can't remember how long that took but I think it was only 2 or 3 hours).
May I suggest spending a few days at Pesco Elqui before heading North? Wonderful place to spend a few days (I had trouble tearing myself away). To get there just get a bus from La Serena.

2re the Paso de Jama (from San Pedro de Atacama to Salta via Susques, which is the principal route). We did this by car from San Pedro to Tilcara, however the route is the same as far as Purmamarca. Journey time was similar to the bus journey time. It took us 9 hours 45 minutes from San Pedro to Tilcara with stops. According to the GPS we were over 11,000 feet for 7 hours 10 minutes, during which we were over 12,000ft for 5 hours 50 minutes.

3It takes about 15 hours, so I recomend to travel at night. You can buy your tickets at www.turbus.cl. This page gives you numer code, and you retire your ticket at bus station.
If you have a good health, you only should move slowly, to don't have any unwanted reation.
If you need more information, only skype me.
