You should definitely get two. They do better in pairs. You should also consider adopting (versus buying from a pet store where the pigs might be sick/pregnant/missexed) and research into the C&C cages. Guinea pigs require a lot more space than a standard pet store cage allots.

Ok, thank you for the tips! I have been looking at shelters and on Craigslist.

Make sure you do as much research as you possibly can, and don't stop researching after you get the pigs. Research breeds interest. http://www.guinealynx.info/healthycavy.html
