Stopped as part of the island tour. Entry fee is very reasonable and staff provides umbrellas if raining. We were able to see three Tarsiers before a big rain chased us out. Would be nice to take a little more time.

The tarsiers are cute, but everything there just shouts money machine. The animals doesn't look like they are very pleased being there.
