Philippine Tarsier

Their eyes are fixed in the skull and they must turn their heads to look around. These little nocturnal primates have very sensitive eyes and pictures with a flash are not allowed.


During March the Sandugo Festivalis is held and in May there’s the Tagbilaran City Fiesta and Bolibong Kingking festival among others. There also the Mag-Aso Falls and Loboc River cruises. You can enjoy a small band playing while you eat and enjoy the beautiful view while on the cruise. The towns in Bohol have many old churches dating back to the Spanish error to see. Department stores, money changers, ATM’s, banks, cinemas, restaurants, hospitals, travel agencies, and hotels also can be found here. Bohol is definitely worth a visit by itself or if you’re in Cebu it’s only about a two hour boat ride on the SuperCat ferries away to see the sites and you can return in the evening.
