Where can i buy a cheap guitar so i can learn to play it ??
You can buy from Damoo in Port-Louis (opposite Jardin Companie).
The problem is that cheap guitars don't sound well. Most people tend to go for acoustic guitars rather than classic ones (nylon strings). The best thing to do is bring a friend who knows guitar well so that they can tell you what the lowest priced guitar you can get without compromising too much on music quality.
Btw, why don't you try getting a second hand guitar or borrow one from an acquaintance? Many people start off very motivated but afterwards think playing guitar is not for them or don't have time to practice. So it would be a good idea to get someone to lend you theirs initially even if it's for a week or two.

Please write in proper English and use capital letters only where appropriate. Since this is your first time on this site, it might be a good idea to read the FAQ because you've replied to a question not with an answer but rather with a question of your own.
Anyway, for a beginner, you should either buy a second hand guitar or get a cheap one to get you started. The answers above have all the details you require.
Cheap? You won't be able to play! I have nearly 10 years experience in guitar playing and believe me, cheap guitars will discourage you. (Don't buy guitars in general shops. It's around Rs800.)
So, if you want to learn to play, buy a good quality guitar. It's around Rs1500 to Rs2000. A Taurus brand will do the work just fine ;)
Hasamal - Curepipe
Damoo - Port-Louis
Columbia - La Louise, Quatres-Bornes

Not remembering the name but there's a good musical instrument shop face to face to Magic Lantern arcade in Rose-Hill.
And in every Kalachand/Yamaha showroom you'll get good guitars.
By the way you looking for nylon or steel?
