Bohol is a province located in the Central Visayas region and it is the 10th largest island in the Philippines. Bohol is a popular tourist destination for its pristine beaches and resorts but it is probably best known for the Chocolate Hills, limestone formations which is unlike anything you will ever see. Panglao Island is just southwest of the capital city, Tagbilaran, and is  a popular diving spot for both foreigners and locals alike.

Another popular attraction in Bohol is the Philippine tarsier, believed to be the second smallest primate in the world. The tarsiers have enormous eyes, with each eyeball about 16mm in diameter. Their eyes are as large as their brains. They have long hind limbs which are suited for leaping and vertical clinging.

Bohol has a generally dry climate with rainfall between the months of June and October. The island is separated by a narrow strait from Cebu and both islands share a common language. However, Boholanos, as the locals are called, retain a conscious distinction from the Cebuanos.
