Does anyone know how I can get a document notarized here? Can I do it at the post office?

No , you cannot. You have to see a Public Notary / Commissioner of Oath / Lawyer person. The last time I did use them, I was charge $125.00 for two piece of document. Look up in the yellow pages or google. Check the price per doc b4 seeing them. It cost an arm and a leg.
If you need it to be authenticate after notarization, you have to go to the Law Academy in the High Court at the Esplanade. That will cost you money too.

Depending on the purpose and your country of origin this kind of services may be also available at your embassy.

Which, if the US Embassy, is even more of a rip off than the utterly ridiculous charges that the local lawyers charge.

my wife had her entire passport notarized by a lawyer (public notary) for about $125. she had it photocopied first at a nearby bookstore, then the lawyer eyeballed it page by page and page for page before clamping, stamping, signing and sealing every one of them.

shop around! you'll get varying rates. approach one-man operation law firms as their rates are rather flexible...
