It was okay. It was raining when we got there. Got to see a few tarsiers hiding under big leaves. Place is very small 15 mins would be enough. Its not a must go place. We found it mildly interesting. Wint go a second time.

It is nice to see such a little creature. But overall, we just saw 4-5 and from far away. The park is also quite small.

We visited the sanctuary and it was not what was expected. There had been a new format put in place. No photos with flash. No loud noises/shouting. Had to been quiet and behaved. The tourists had been scaring the Tarsier & they couldn't take the stress. We were told, they bang their heads to kill themselves ! Or just go... More

These creatures are so tiny and a lot smaller than we imagined! They looked like they were very well looked after! It only costs 60pesos to enter and you're probably inside about 10 mins! Please respect the silence signs I was getting rather frustrated with foreign tourists shouting and pointing their phones right at them!!! I even told them to... More

So I was really excited. Or the entire group was. But it was a rainy day. Muddy. And my husband kept worrying about snakes somewhere as it was quite bushy, and he spoke to one of the guides who told him that there might be and it added to his ill feelings. I was happy to see one as I... More

Back then I thought Tarsier's are very hard to find but the Tarsier Conservation Area keeps them alive and safe. Please don't get too close to them it might irritate them and don't even think of touching, thats a No-no.

Went to the park to see the tarsiers. Entry was 60 pesos per person. A guide showed us the little tarsiers. The most slept but a few were awake. The tarsiers were smaller as expected. Would recommend to see them!

We anticipated the tarsier conservation area visit.. but then, what we saw broke my heart... the tarsiers are nocturnal creatures and get to sleep during the day., but with continuous flow of visitors, they always get disturbed... If we really want to conserve these animals we should do it the right way...

To tell you the truth, I had never heard of Tarsiers before I googled them in anticipation of our cruise stop in Bohol. They are very interesting. A park ranger was standing next to each bush in which a tiny tarsier slept. We might have walked throughout the entire area without seeing them, they are so small and curled up... More
