Altun Ha means "rock stone Water". This Mayan Tomb Acropolis Temple was occupied from about B.C. 900 to A.D. 1000. The Maya temples in Belize are some of the best Mayan ruins throughout Central America. The ancient Maya flourished in this area and created sprawling city with extraordinary commercial channels running from north to south and from east to west. Their size was ended, but left magnificent remains of what was once a great empire.
