Cute animals to see but there were only few of them, might have been more and more to see or do. Still liked it. Kids too. Recommend.

A perfect place to witness tarsiers.. a sanctuary/ safe haven for these unique indigenous creatures. Staff were knowledgeable about the primate and its behaviours e.g. territorial tendencies. Couldnt get an upclose shot. There is a shop for souvenirs nearby and some cool refreshments during viewing.

Positives: You can't miss seeing the tarsiers if you are in Bohol. Here, we saw maybe 8-10 of them. It was not difficult to spot them. They were very close to the visitors, around 1.5-2 meters max, so you could observe them very well. They...More

Bohol Island can be circumnavigated in a day by car or van. If you really want to go to the Tarsier Sanctuary, you can do so at anytime wherever you are staying on the island.
