Tarsiers are cared for and thrive in their natural environment here. As these guys are nocturnal, a guide accompanies each group and points them out in the trees. We saw about 6 and since they don't move around a lot, its easy for the guides to identify them. Each full grown primate only grows upto 23cm! Their average life expectancy... More

We chose to go here instead of the other Tarsier conservation area in Loboc, on the way to the Chocolate Hills ... and I'm really glad we did. You get to see these amazing little creatures up close in their natural environment and feel happy in the knowledge that your money is going towards looking after their wellbeing. You might... More

There are so many opportunities to educate your child when you visit the sanctuary. Of course, the guides have plenty of good info (not ours though, but I could hear the stuff the guide with the other group was sharing). They also have plenty of posters, and other materials. There are eight tarsiers in the area for tourists. Unfortunately, because... More

This is the place to go to see Tarsiers up close and in nature and to learn about them. You might get a little muddy, but that's to be expected if you going out into the forest.

There are two places in Bohol to see the tarsiers- Tarsier Sanctuary and Tarsier Conservatory. I chose to check the sanctuary managed by Tarsier Man. I had the opportunity to see the tarsiers up close and take photos. Each tarsier has an assigned person because tarsiers are very sensitive. Youre not suppose to hold them, or to go too close...

We paid 50 (or maybe 100) pesos per person and were eagerly waiting for a guide. Unfortunately for us, a big bus full of tourists came at the same time, so we had to join them. We saw 5 tarsiers up close, but didn't have enough time to enjoy their cuteness, because all the time we were rushed through the... More

A quick guided tour through a Bamboo Forest. Was able to get fairly close to these guys, remember to not use a flash when taking photo's as the Tarsiers don't like it (some people did it anyway even though asked repeatedly to stop by the guides) So you can get great photo's by being able to get fairly close. The... More

Seeing the Tarsiers up close and person was super fun! I have always wanted to see them, and being able to do so in their natural environment without disturbing them was amazing. I def recommend this.

This was a nice place to see the Tarsiers as most of them are just living at the trees which were eye level. The place is small but sufficient. Their guides are also friendly and strict. Bohol is lucky to have these creatures and is one of the main drivers of the tourism industry. Please go there early around 9... More
