Great place to start your Chocolate Mountain adventure.

Loved seeing the protected, natural environment to the tarsier. We saw 4 on our 30 minute walk and had a wonderful guide.

Our group (8 of us) with our tour guide were the first tourists to arrive at the Tarsier Conservation Area - 8:15am (the park opens at 8:30am, but our tour guide got us in early). The park is quite beautiful as is the small reception area quite nice and tells the story of Tarsiers (Smallest Primates in the World). We... More

The tarsier sanctuary is a must see if you're in Bohol. Although the whole experience is over In about 30 mins - it's well worth it. Cheap entry and cute gift shop. The tarsiers themselves are adorable and I couldn't believe how tiny they were! It was tempting to reach out and cuddle one but don't worry, I didn't! Definitely... More

This is a must-see in Bohol. You can be very close to these cute little animals in their natural habitat; staff indicate where they are at that moment so you can see them. There's a gift shop at the end.

We were envious of the photos we found to have been holding tarsiers because we weren't allowed to touch them or go near them. People there will tell us that the tarsiers commit suicide once we do touch them. Noone will guide you on your way around the place. You just walk your way through and out till you reach... More

30 minutes max needed. Small, but informative, the tarsier sanctuary brings to it what you normally might not find on your own. Providing a nestled home for each individual tarsier, the sanctuary provides a walking path to viewing each tarsier (there's about 8-10) for catching your photos. Each tarsier has been carefully placed in an area that was crafted together... More

There are 2 conservations with Tarsiers on Bohol. When given the choice pleaase visit this one. The other one is a profit organisation not really bothered with leaving the animals as undisturbed as possible. Here at least you can see the animals in a somewhat "actual" environment. This also means there are no guides carrying the primates and you sometimes... More

It's quite dark under the leaves where they sleep. Difficult to get a decent picture without a good camera. Most of them were sleeping so we didn't really get to see their big eyes.

But honestly it's like 5 mins long and crowded. Its worth it just to have a (unrealistic?) belief that you're helping those small cute little thangs

We were been told we could see any but on the way back from chocolate hills we stopped for a try. A small fee to enter the park but nothing out of this world. When you see them kept in an really animal friendly environment you fall in love with this little cute super small animals. Try it.
