These cute creatures are about the size of your hand and vry difficult to see in their environment. The pictures advertised are misleading. Not worth it in my opinion.

Well hidden in the middle of the jungle, this place really takes care of this little animals. Even if we talk about an enclosure, it's big and surrounded by nature. Far away from the noises of the city or the road that might disturb these little creatures. In April 15 they had 8 tarsiers in the enclosure, we managed to... More

My son and I visited the Philippine Tarsier Sanctuary to see these cute little creatures. We had the chance to see three different ones (all pretty close up) while we were there. They let us take our time to look at them and get some great pictures of them. Unfortunately, some very rude tourists came up at one point and... More

Yes, you are still basically seeing captive tarsiers here, but the conditions and treatment are far better than other places on Bohol. To start with, the viewing enclosure is essentially a fenced in portion of forest, so it is easily the most natural place to see them. Second, it is set back from the highway and far from city noises,... More

You get to see these adorable and fuzzy little ones in their natural habitat up close and personal. With P50.00 as entrance fee, the visit is worth every peso! Please don't use flash photography as it will disturb them. Hope this center will continue caring for these adorable creatures.

It was quite a very short detour although it was our, together with my two little boys, first to have seen the smallest monkey in the world. My hubby was our tour guide. There were like 3-5 tarsiers out on that because most of them were caged (i think, that's what the staff told us since it was mating season... More

I think there are three similar places but this is the best one to visit. Although we didn't visit the others this one seems to be the most official and most conservation orientated. We enjoyed our visit. Of course this isn't the Serengeti or the Masai Mara but given you are going just to see one animal it is well... More

Although there was little to see aside from the Tarsier, and the area was in rough shape following an earthquake, seeing a tarsier made it worth it. What a beautiful little creature

This was nice however these Tarsiers are also being fed. A nicer option would be really seeing them in the wild, but that would not be an easy task as they are very small and hard to spot in the trees. Still, they do treat them well as the tourists are required to be quiet and look at them from... More

This place seems like the real deal compared to the Tarsier conservation area further inland. We visited both but much preferred the less money orientated Sanctuary. The Tarsier's are however just as cute and sleepy in both places!
