We're trying to plan a last-minute vacation somewhere warm for the week before our daughter's second birthday, cost/availability has led us towards a condo in the Hopkins area of Belize. Snowflake details within!

We're trying to get a family vacation under our belt before we have to start paying for our daughter's airline ticket, and after running through the various VRBO options in Puerto Rico, the Keys, parts of Mexico, etc. we found a condo in the Hopkins area of Belize that fits what we're looking for.
1) Scuba diving is pretty much out for us, but we enjoyed snorkeling quite a bit in Greece before daughter was born. Obviously we'd have to take turns, but we're looking forward to it. Any suggestions for snorkeling boats/tours?
2) Yes, we're going to have to do a rush 2-week passport. We're in Chicago, so we can go down to the passport agency over lunch, but any tips to make the process go more smoothly?
3) Seems like we'll have to rent a car, what are the chances we'll be able to get one with an automatic? I've had pretty crap luck at this while traveling in the past, and am only barely competent with a manual.
4) Any other suggestions for attractions, places to eat, tours to go on (with a toddler) would be greatly appreciated.
