Tarsiers and Chocolate Hills

After a week of hanging out on the beach and drinking cocktails, we split up into a couple groups to see different things. Simon had to head back to China, Richard and Fraser went for more beach action at Boracay, and myself and Wes (briefly) headed to Bohol to check out some jungles, see some animals, and the Chocolate Hills. Bohol was one of my favorite places on this trip. The hostel I stayed at called Nuts Huts was fantastic. It is basically a series of huts on stilts right at the bottom of a river valley smack dab in the middle of the jungle. Each hut is themed like a famous movie. Mine was called Casablanca. The river is this creamy emerald green color and the place is ran by a Belgian couple, and it is ran very well. They have tonnes of information about what you can do on the island, they provide kayakm mountain bike, and motorcycle rentals, and even have an on site massage service and sauna. The common areas are really great too. Bohol has several of the oldest churches in the Philippines, some built in the 1500's. There are also plenty of outdoor activities to choose from and spectacular sights such as the Chocolate Hills, the Tarsier Sanctuary, Simply Butterfly, and just cruising around the roads on a motrocycle is a great experience. Loved it here!
