Compared to what it was in 2017, there are less paths/trails open to the public now. It's still well maintained though.

The restrooms need a bit more regular cleaning.

Overall, it's still a good place to bring the kids to.

Added highlight of this place is the store offering fresh buko (coconuts) right outside. Heard it's free of you buy a shirt there.

The first time I went to Bohol, we saw tarsiers inside a restaurant and staff were turning tarsier's heads to face the camera and waking them up for guests. It was very disheartening.

This place, however, let tarsiers be in a natural habitat. The place printed constant reminders for guests to be quiet and respect this small primates. Guides are very helpful and take good photos too. I would recommend.

Visiting this endangered nocturnal tiny creatures in a protected enclave is part of one’s itinerary when visiting Bohol . Please take note that the staff minding them are good photographers. With your cell phone they make great pics with the tarsier to make the encounter more remarkable.

It was a really good experience, it can see those small animals, that day rained for that reason was kinda difficult to see them, but we could it.

Guides are there to point out the tarsiers. They are nocturnal, so they are sleeping while you observe them. Be careful not to disturb them with noise. Explanations of their nature and activity are provided. Very worthwhile.

As a thunderstorm passed over , our private Bohol Day Tour stopped into the Bohol Tarsier Conservation Area , after visiting other local tourist attraction

Bohol Tarsier Conservation Area ... is a protected forestry park , for the tremendous project in the preservation & husbandry of Tarsiers

Tarsiers ... are a cute , little , tree dwelling primate , with instinctive large eyes that help with it’s nocturnal instincts by maximise the available night lights

Some other interesting fact about the Tarsiers
• Tarsiers eyes are heavier then their brains
• Tarsiers have the biggest eyes of all mammals - compared to their body size
• Tarsiers are carnivores- watch your fingers 🤣🤣

The forest like trees in this protected sanctuary , are populated with nocturnal insects , that make up the Tarsier's diet

Disappointedly on the day we visited , as still heavy raining ... plus being near midday ... understandably the little Tarsiers were hiding under the foliage

Through this conservation area , are the goat-track sealed walkways , used to observe the Tarsiers from ... with conservation staff spotters , helpfully directing visitors to the hard to find Tarsiers

Totally worth it

Would have liked to have taken better photos ... not easy with the rain & iPhone

This place is setup with a breeding program. Because of this and because tarsiers are nocturnal animals, each day they set up 9 tarsiers in a natural habitat setting so you can view them. It appears they use different tarsiers each day. Even though it’s not a 100% natural setting I don’t see how else you would set it up for viewing in the daytime. There are guides who were very knowledgeable and answered many questions about the primates. We really enjoyed our visit here. The souvenir shop would be better if they removed the disgusting and irrelevant phallic symbols.
