  • Philippine Tarsier Encounter in Bohol
  • Tarsiers have been synonymous with Bohol as much as the Chocolate Hills, stunning Panglao Island, and the Loboc River Cruise. There are several places for you to choose from if you want to have that once-in-a-lifetime encounter with Philippine Tarsiers. Bohol Tarsier is one of these places.

    Bohol Tarsier is located in Villa Aurora, Bilar, Bohol. They’re one of the few places certified by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to take care of the rare Philippine Tarsier. For only P60 (P50 if you’re a student or senior citizen), you’ll get the chance to see Philippine Tarsiers in person. They’re usually no bigger than your hand, with eyes that are larger than what their body size dictates.

    A total of 8 tarsiers can be seen at Bohol Tarsier, with others being bred in captivity. The trees where you can find them are marked with signs that say “Please keep quiet.” Make sure you’re quiet throughout the short walk, as tarsiers are usually asleep during the day.

    If you’re looking for souvenirs from Bohol, Bohol Tarsier has its own souvenir shop at the very end of your tour. It’s open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
