No advance booking needed. By visiting the Philippine Tarsier Foundation, Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella, you are already supporting the Tarsier Conservation Efforts of the foundation as all fees goes to this cause.
Entrance fee is P60 pesos per person. With that you get a guided tour inside the Tarsier sleeping site where the tarsiers rest during the day. It’s a free environment and is only enclosed to keep predators like house cats away, but the tarsiers can jump out of it during the night to hunt for food.
BEST TIME TO VISIT: Afternoon would be recommended as tourist companies send guests to us in the morning.
KINDLY OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING: No flashes, Keep voice extremely low as much as possible, do not touch the animal, you can take as many pictures as you like but don’t stay to long in one tarsier–5 mins per tarsier will do; do not litter or leave anything, do not take anything, only the guide can interact with the tarsier. We open 9:00 am and close at 4pm this is for the tarsiers and other wildlife inhaiting the sanctuary.
WHAT TO EXPECT: It’s a natural environment, thus the trail will be muddy when raining (umbrellas are no use when raining too, so just prepare rain coat), thick growth of bushes and trees, some trails are slippery, some a little up hill, some a little narrow. Just be careful.
All in all, enjoy the forest and enjoy nature.
