My group has a severe attachment to mojito's and salsa. Can we get large quantities of each at the supermarket. I don't remember seeing either during our last trip in October. Any help is appreciated.

Most of the major grocery stores stock a wide variety of fresh herbs (boxed in a plastic wrap). The availability is, like most things on Bonaire, hit or miss as to whether they have them at the exact time you want to purchase them.

One more thought.........you might want to check with Renee (www.bonairepersonalshopper.com (http://www.bonairepersonalshopper.com)) and see if she can buy you quantities of each just before your arrival. That might help.

Mike - I share your group's attachment to Mojito's and salsa.
La Portuguesa almost always has fresh cilantro. I think it tastes better than those found in the plastic packages.
It's usually the cheapest there, too.
I usually buy NAfls. 1,00 worth and it's a LOT.
Mint can usually be found at Warehouse in their produce section, or at More for Less in their coolers.

Thanks to all..............I'm leaning towards bringing enough mint to cover a couple days then hoping the stores will be stocked.
