I am going to visit Arica and from there I am planning to go to Putre and Lauca National Park. I would like to ask for recommendation as to how to move around the park, I understand that it covers quite a decent area (too large to see it all on foot in one day) and that is why I am wondering whether to a). rent a car and move around on my own, b). take an organized tour from Arica to Lauca, c). try to wait and see whether I can get some organized tour from the hotel in Putre where I will be staying. Can I ask anyone who has already been there to recommend what is the best option? I should add that I will be a solo traveller and that makes a thing a little bit more complicated....

So I've been reading a LP guidebook but it doesn't seem to mention about the bus schedule, it mentions only prices and durations. Does anyone know what time of day the bus leaves from Arica to La Paz? It doesn't have to be an exact time but an approximate one let's say early morning, late afternoon, overnight or something like that is enough.
