I do pretty much the same as you: go to the LaTeX file to see if I can
identify the cause of the error reported in the PDF buffer.  There's no
easy way to accomplish the same directly from org
unfortunately.  Sometimes, the context given in the PDF output is enough
to point me to the right place in the org file but not often...

I look forward to seeing inputs from others on this.

I will say, however, that using org means less LaTeX errors than I would
usually encounter when writing LaTeX directly!
