Current sjsm student starting next week here. You can buy a bike as soon as you get to the island. There are several stores that sell them. They are not high end like in the states but they get you from point a to b. I bought my son's at the superstore and paid $135 guilders for a 26" mountain bike. Then went to Tung Foo and bought my daughter a BMX bike for $195 guilders and myself a 26" mountain bike for $215 guilders. They all come with cheap innertubes for the tires so as soon as we bought them we took them over to the Bonaire Cycle Shop (right by the superstore) and a wonderful gentleman named James replaced some of the inner tubes and just today fixed my sons gears and brakes. We looked at shipping some in from the states and with the cost of that plus the cost of the bike it was just cheaper to get them here. Plus you only need it for a few months then you can either sell it or do what we plan on doing and that's donating them to the boy's home before we leave.
