The Tarsier Conservation in Corella is better than the one I last visited. Corella was smaller but you can easily see the Tarsier because they are nearer to the walking area for tourists. The place was less congested than the one in Loboc. Bt I...More

The Tarsiers were definitely one of my favourite things in Bohol... they look so fragile, cute and sometimes weird and funny. The large quantity of signs around clearly indicate that SILENCE IS A MUST, but tourists (Particularly Chinese ones) found it apt to be taking...More

you walk around in a small forest like parc, employees point out to you where the tarsiers are and you can see them from about 1 meter distance, 1 USD for the entrance

No hidden costs, pretty straight forward and up close encounters of the furry kind. No touching tho, so it’s just viewing. It’s okay if you have not much to do in Bohol.

I am very interested in photography and they are the most photogenic little guys around. Love that the sanctuary is successful and helping to restore their numbers.

This was a must see but please don't terrorize the little lemurs. They are nocturnal and are easily stressed. So keep picture taking to a minimum. And when they are stressed they commit suicide. That's one thing I learned. The ones that are on display...More

You are really visiting just to see these cute little monkeys, otherwise you will be bored. Staff and signs instruct you to be very quiet around the monkeys to avoid startling them. May not be best for rowdy young children. The monkeys were awake when...More

Nice experience to see few tarsier in their "natural" environment. The cheap (60p) visit takes ~20min with a kind guide that help you to see these cute and shy Tarsier. I went at 15:00 (1h before closure) and I can spot 5 of them ,...More

Easiest would be to rent a scooter and head there, about an easy 30 min ride. Combine that with Chocolate hills, Bohol and Man made forests, you can spend a day.

Both sights you mentioned are in Bohol. The tarsier sancturary is not that far away from Tagbilaran (20-25 minutes?), but you will have to hire a driver to take you there anyway. Chocolate Hills are little further into the... More
