Still itching for a vacay and eager to make the most out of what's left this summer, we gave you our list of the metro's swankiest swimming pools earlier this week.

We did say that we're now out of reasons and resources to head out of town, but it turns out that's not exactly true. Fellas, our new motto is this: pwedeng lumayo, basta malapit lang.

Republic Wakepark Nuvali

West Diversity Boulevard, Nuvali, 4027 Calamba, Laguna

Travel time: Less than an hour away from Makati
Which means: It's literally a tumbling away from Tagaytay
Damage: P1,500 (8 hours, wakeboarding), P1,000 (8 hours, wakeskating)
