Lots of Tarsiers in their natural habitat. It's a small area, expect to only spend 15/20 minutes there, but it's inexpensive and worth it

You only need 20mins to visit here and see these little guys. But if you like cute little animals, it's a bit if a must see.

it was nice to see tarsiers but in all honesty its just a big money making scheme. this whole place is advertised as beautiful and amazing but in reality its not worth the time. unless you're really obsessed with tarsier theres no point in going here. saw about 6 tarsiers in the whole area, if you are going to go...

Very bad experience on this attraction. Entrance fee was 60 pesos and only about 5-6 tarsiers. Place was huge but tarsiers were only very few. It's like one tarsier on every corner of the place. Best if you visit another tarsier sanctuary. Not worth the visit. Closes early also.

Tarsiers are nocturnal creatures so they were naturally asleep. Only few of them in the area and all have their own area, tarsiers are territorial as described during the orientation. Very informative and educational, tarsiers are very cute and so little. Glad to see them up close, even just a few meters.

Not much tarsier to see. And I was not informed that its best to use phones to take pictures of these cuties. I hope the management will be more strict on implementing their rules.

Went early in the morning ( before 9 am) and only a few people were there. Passed by later that morning and the place looked packed. Well worth P60 to see these cute little balls of fur. The conservation area began the tour with a talk, then we were free to follow a short trail. Guides were stationed along the... More

They were really cute, jumping in their enclosures whenever a visitor gets close by to them.. But was saddened that manhandling of the tarsiers by families of tourists was allowed.. they r not soft toys but real living creatures.. my god...

Lovely little place however spoilt by the fact it's the workers let way too many visitors in at one time. The rules state the tarsiers need quiet and space however the day we visited it was ruined by loud rude Japanese tourists who obviously don't know the idea of being quiet. The Japanese also thought it was ok to whack... More

Wonderful experience to see this amazing creature and to hear about those lifestyle. It was challenge to find this creature hiding in the trees / branches. However, there was enough number of guides to direct us to find this species. The guides were knowledgeable and provides valuable information about the Tarsier
