It’s (sadly) time to say goodbye to the barely-there chilly weather and start to pull out our supply of cotton dresses and sandos to welcome summer. The temperature is noticeably becoming warmer and as we’re all familiar, it’s around this time of the year that plans with your barkada are drawn on the virtual canvas that is Facebook messenger.
But where better to spend the warm sultry summer days than lounging lazily or splashing wildly, in a pool or at the beach? Check out these 8 waterparks a few hours’ drive from Manila! Who knows, you might get to color that drawing one of these weekends to come.

Hotel Club Balai Isabel introduced their own aquapark only last year, an inflatable white-and-gray waterpark off the coast of Taal Lake. The tall inflatable slide was inspired by Taal itself and only the bravest and most daring of souls could try the almost 90 degree drop. But if you’re too scared, there’s also a human launcher, trampoline, a hamster wheel, and lots of walls to scale and inflatable obstacles to run through.
Other activities aside from the inflatable water park include billiards and basketball.
