The location is not ideal for the tarsier you can hear the noise from the buses along the road which from what I read is they should be kept in a quit place because if the tarsier is stress they comit suicide.

This is just a quick stop coming from your Chocolate Hills tour. Great way to see the beautiful tarsiers.

It's good to see the Tarsier You can't go there without see it But it's too small It's take only five mins to finish. Maybe only five tarsiers inside.

50php for entrance but nothing to see. They should have other activities in there than just those sleeping tarsiers. Or they could have given a freebie to compensate for that 50php.

We saw these cute little creatures up close. It was satisfying to see that these creatures are being protected by the locals.

A well-spent twenty minutes here is all you need to view the sleeping (presumably nocturnal), super-cute tarsiers. Worth the entrance fee but not a long visit.

They are doing a great job to save this little creature. Many where hiding the day we went, but there was still a couple we got to see. Such cute little creatures.

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.
