4 or 5 stressed tarsiers sheltering under a leaf along a short path with their "caretakers" next to them in case you can't spot the little creatures. Despite the silence signs, people are noisy, laughing out loud during the selfies, even the "caretakers" speak loudly. Poor animals, they don't deserve this.

I didn't plan to visit the sanctuary but my guide stopped on the way back from the Chocolate Hills. It was VERY crowded and I was whisked through the hectic entry, a postcard shoved in my hand and then shown the path for the maybe 30 metre circuit where you can see a few tarsiers sheltering just off the path. Despite the signs asking for silence, you could tell the tarsiers were stressed and unable to sleep due to noise and constant photos etc. I think they've made efforts in the last few years to better conserve the tarsiers but this tourist trap is pretty sad - maybe unless we can provide a quieter environment we should stick to looking at photos/ videos of them for now...

A pleasant stop on the way to the chocolate hills. If you’re on your way to the chocolate hills, then take 30 minutes to check this place out on the way. We were able to see many Tarsiers and even had our photo taken with one. You will walk a path and have to look in the trees to spot them. The staff does a great job making sure you see them so it’s worth the 100 pesos entry fee. Clean bathroom 👍🏼

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.

Cute litte tarsiers sleeping on trees. Place was serene and relaxing. I just feel uneasy that we visit them while they are resting. Tarsiers are nocturnal animals.
