Default Waterproofs for the tropics?!

I'm going to Belize next month for my first flats fishing trip. I've pretty much got all my kit together for the trip. Spent the past few weeks tying up a box of bonefish flies, which as a relative newbie to tying I was pretty pleased with, took the box to my local fly shop and was told it didn't need any supplementing

In most of the equipment lists I've read it suggests to bring some rain wear (it's the start of the rainy season in Belize). Apparently it can be quite cold when running to the flats in the panga. So my question is, do you guys take rainwear to the tropics, or just get wet then dry out? If so can you recommend me a breathable shell jacket? Ideally it would be packable (ie fold up into itself).

Cheers,
Alex.
