The area they show is very small, only 4-5 tarsiers. It takes about 15 min to see them. Very interesting, but a bit sad as they don't limit the number of tourists that can enter at once. One of the tarsiers got caught in a circle of people, was scared, tried to jump away, but people were everywhere, it was breaking my heart. Other than that the staff seems to care about them, and protect.

Guide takes you and point where Tarsier is, so you can find them easily. they are very small and cute. They do not move on a tree that reminded me koala bear. Saw 4-5 tarsier that took about 30 minutes. If you come to Bohol, you should not leave without seeing them.

A visit to the Corella sanctuary only takes 30 minutes but it is definitely worth it. You are first given a briefing with information about Tarsiers and rules on how to behave. You are then taken in small groups around the sanctuaries to have a glimpse at tarsiers which have been pre-found by the guide (it takes then 2-3 hours to find them!). You may/not get good pictures depending on how far away the tarsiers are. We saw 4 in our trip - they are beautiful animals! They weren’t doing anything as they were sleeping. Visitors are encouraged to remain silent, not to use flash photography, and not to get too close. We came as part of a ‘Countryside tour’ otherwise the entrance is 60 pesos. The sanctuary is open from 9 to 4.

This is the place to see natural habitat of tarsiers where they are living in wild protected area, respected and taken care of. It’s only 15 minutes walk through the jungle together with the guide to spot those little creatures. This sanctuary is a must when on Bohol (instead of touristy conservation park).

Some good work may well go on behind the scenes here, but the tourist attraction itself certainly does NOT benefit the Tarsiers on display here! A tiny route is plotted through a small contained foresty area, which conveniently has Tarsiers evenly spaced out at short intervals along the way from the very entrance until the exit, conveniently right on the path and conveniently photo opportunity worthy. You are literally in and out in 5-10 minutes having walked maybe 100 metres and having seen approx 6 or 7 Tarsiers. I refuse to believe these are happy animals! So many people being loud and inconsiderate, including one staff member who was taking photos for the guests and barking instructions at them whilst poking their phone inches from the Tarsier itself. Seems very counterproductive to make these animals so miserable if your supposed goal is to protect their wellbeing. I wanted to see these wonderful creatures for myself, but not like this... It's a purely selfish experience and the photos aren't worth the shame.
