Our hotel informed us that this was the best place to see the tarsiers. They are animals that like their own space and are all spread around the park separately. The guides have to look for them each morning before opening up. The tour only...More

We enjoyed a lot. The tansiers are free in the wild, not in cages. Our guide was very nice and showed us some tansiers. They seem to be good in there

There are a few tarsier conservations on the island and we went to this. We also met the person labelled as the “Tarsier man” who discovered a new species endemic to the island which was nice. Before going in we had our guide explain who...More

These primates are small and may not be obvious to see. The local volunteers will guide you but be sure to refrain from talking out loud for they love quiet places. Bring insect repellents when you go there.

Tarsiers are the world's smallest primate, roughly 3.5 inches long with an equally long tail. In other words, super tiny! They're also nocturnal, which means that when you see them during the day, they're curled up asleep. It's interesting to see them even in that...More

Definitely worth a visit! The Tarsiers are very shy and you will probably never see them in complete wildlife. The sanctuary is a perfect place to watch them in their typical surrounding.

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

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

There are several ferry companies that run between Cebu and Bohol. I used the SuperCat ferry that runs three times per day, each way (nice, comfortable fast ferry). The journey takes 2 hours to the Tagbilaran ferry... More
