Tarsiers look happy here.

I've seen tarsiers 3 times at a period of 5 years apart and seeing them here in this sanctuary seems to be the best way to keep them. Previously tarsiers are kept by individual... read more

A calm and BIG sanctuary for 4 tarsiers still in the jungle, so its not the captured-zoo-feeling you'll get. We were let inside in a small group of 5 and had enough time to enjoy the animals and take pictures. Nobody stuck flashes in the tarsiers face, nobody dared to be noisy and everything was in deep respect towards the... More

I've seen tarsiers 3 times at a period of 5 years apart and seeing them here in this sanctuary seems to be the best way to keep them. Previously tarsiers are kept by individual private owners who receive a fee to show tourists the primates. These tarsiers looked stressed as I remember with stubborn and inconsiderate tourists clicking cameras with... More

The tour did not take long as there were only 4 tarsiers in the area during our visit. As they are nocturnal animals, I was expecting to find them asleep but all of them had their wonderful eyes open! A couple of them were following the movement of an ant. It was really cute to see them moving their heads!... More

Of course Bohol is famous for its tarsiers, but the "wildlife" experience isn't all that thrilling. Merchandise everywhere, too many people and just a few monkey that can barely be seen from far away...

POINTS TO BE AWARE: This one, the Sanctuary, is the one where they don't handle the primates. Tarsiers in captivity, kept awake during the day, allowed to be touched, end up committing suicide. Yes, suicide. They bang their tiny little heads and or hold their breath until they kill themselves. HOW TO GET THERE: It's easy to get to the... More

This center takes respect to the primate.. Even if you maybe see less compared to the other place this one is not a tourist center and harmful.

Easy quiet place to get to. There was not many animals there but enjoyed seeing nature as it was meant to be.. small entrance fee. Many steps to the top. Still worth seeing.

Cute tarsiers, i will not give comments on the tarsier since the reviews were overflowing about it. For the commuters, you may ride mini bus (yellow) going to sikatuna at the Tagbilaran public market, fronting integrated bus terminal. 25mins ride costing Php 15.00. you may ride habal-habal costing 150 if you want but still the price is negotiable depending on...

Costs 60 pesos, and you go around on a small guided tour. Does not take that long, and there isn't enything else to see (a small museum) But it is all worth it, they are so cute and small. And the money goes to a good cause. I only feel a little bit sad for the small things, there are... More

The Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella is the place to see one of the smallest primates in the wild. There is, of course, other places to see tarsiers. But I’m afraid other tarsier "conservation" areas have left the brooding and loner tarsiers overexposed to the selfie-obsessed tourists. Here, it's thankfully "hands off, camera flash off". There are said to be 10... More
