When we initially went to see the tarsiers here, the Sanctuary was closed for two days due to a festival of some description. It was lucky that our time here was flexible, so we came back when they reopened. When we came, there was only two little tarsiers that were in the sanctuary, as they are allowed to come and...

Average, for the entrance fee that you pay to help keep/maintain the facilities (whichs is about P60 per person) you get what you pay for. Grounds was unassuming, you have to climb/trek through a path going up. We had a toddler in tow so it was a bit of a challenge - something to think about for families with babies... More

The sanctuary is not affected by the earthquake. However spotting these little creatures really depends heavily on luck. Though the spotter manage to find them, they still prefer to hide behind branches and leaves. Do note that the sanctuary only open at 0900hrs.

Excellent opportunity to see tarsiers in their natural habitat. Guides stationed around the attraction were very helpful and pointed out the little creatures as we walked along. There was a lookout station a few minutes walk away from the entrance. Spotted a handful of tarsiers hugging the branches as they slept. It drizzled while we were visiting, so the sanctuary... More

This is the true Tarsier Conservation Centre please do not visit the bogus 'attraction' in Loboc as that is a privately owned money making fake, they do not breed Tarsiers there. The guides at this centre are knowledgeable and provide a wealth of information regarding this curious little animal. The Tarsiers sleep in a large compound during the day but... More

I enjoyed this sanctuary in Corella very much. You go into the sanctuary and see the tarsiers sleeping in the trees. Sometimes they wake up, but tarsiers are nocturnal so make an effort to be quiet! Entrance fee is practicly nothing at 50 pesos, so be a good tourist and make a donation. 1000 pesos should be a minimum in... More

We travel Very extensively and have been fortunate enough to see many of the great wonders of the world, this was amongst the best of them. We took a bus (30mins) to Carmel (15P each) and walked the 4km to the Sanctuary entrance. We entered and bought tickets (50P each) - they do cokes there 20P each - ice cold!... More

This is the only tarsier area that I visited while I was in Bohol, but based on what I've heard, not every place has the animals' best interests at heart. It is clear that this place does. They genuinely care about the tarsiers' welfare and protection. This is definitely a place where you can see the animals in a natural,... More
