Meet the tarsier, one of the world’s most timid, large-eyed creatures, at Tarsier Botanika. This botanical garden boasts over 2,000 species of tropical plants, as well as seaside walkways and small villas built in the style of traditional pyramidal Ifugao houses. However, the tarsiers stand out as the main attraction. While you can happily observe the timid creatures, you should keep your voice down and try not to alarm them, as they scare easily. A French couple designed the villas and the gardens and decorated them with stone carvings and metal sculptures of tarsiers, ants, and crabs, among other animals. The resort also features an equestrian center where you can learn basic dressage techniques.

Je ne sais pas trop ce que j'espérais voir mais j'ai été un peu déçue. Le parc est assez petit. Un gardien vous enjoint à être silencieux et à vous déplacer lentement pour ne pas déranger les tarsiers... read more »I'm not sure what I was hoping, but I was a little disappointed. The Park is small enough. A guard directs you to be silent and to move slowly so as not to disturb the tarsiers. It takes you on a trail and you watch stupid kids hanging on a branch. They are tiny, barely a few centimeters high and the visit is completed. See anyway because it is unique and under conditions of respect for the animal. Excellent educational panels at the entrance. I don' know what I expected really but I was kind of disappointed. The Park is rather small. A store asks you to be silent at all times and to move around quietly in order not to disturb the tarsiers. He takes you along a path and shows you the little animals clutched to a branch. They are very small, only a few inches tall and that's it, end of the visit. However, it is a must see because it is unique and everything is done to preserve the tarsiers and their habitat. Excellent information displays in the tourist center.show original
