Should I bring the flyrod to Negril, Jamaica?

This Sunday wife and I are taking a quick hope to Sandals, Negril (she won the trip). I was wondering if it was worth it to take the fly rod. Actually, my main concern are the ocean conditions. That is, is the surf heavy or light? I really don't want to be casting into moderate or greater sized waves. Of course, I would prefer calm waters. So, what can I expect?

Oh, BTW, I'm only taking my 8 wt and would love to find some bones or barracuda, but any fish that likes my fly, is welcome to it.

DEFINITELY bring it, I have read that the Negril area has lagoon tarpon and snook.

I don't have direct experience but I can tell you I happened to bring the rod on a trip my wife won and it resulted in me jumping 11 tarpon in one morning!

Got nothing to lose do it!
