“A must Visit”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

It is in Loboc. I ride a motorbike up to Chocolate mountains and visit it on the way up. A very properly managed conservation area. I pay a modest entrance fee and went up to view. There are conservation people on certain points where they will point to you the Tarsiers. The Tarsiers are mainly sleeping in the daylight so they will ask you to be quiet and no flash on camera. It is nice to view the Tarsiers close up, especially when they open their eyes!!!

“Shy little ones..”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

For a first timer, i was really looking forward to see the famous tarsiers of bohol. Since they are nocturnal, they just hang on to the branches like statues, not moving at all. Anyway I was not dismayed. Just to see them with my own eyes already satisfies me. Another must see if you visit bohol...

“A must visit when in Bohol”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

The conservation area is built in a way that it complements both the tourist and the animals. A footpath is built around the conservation area and provides the tourists a very good vantage point up close and almost personal encounter with the tarsiers.

Photo taking is allowed provided that flush is deactivated. The conservation staff are helpful and even provides umbrella for lease (free) when it is raining.

This attraction is not buggy friendly. The footpath can be slippery when wet. Extra caution must be taken. Silence is a must whilst inside the conservation area so as not to disturb these lovely nocturnal animals.

Basic toilet facilities, provided.

Attraction fee: PhP 60/adult (US$1.50 or £1). Cash only in local currency.
Discounted rates are extended to students and senior citizens upon presentation of ID.

Visited this attraction as part of a city day tour.
