From the Altun Ha entry in Wikipedia:

Altun Ha is the name given to the ruins of an ancient Mayan city in Belize, located in the Belize District about 50 km (31 miles) north of Belize City and about 10 km (6 miles) west of the shore of the Caribbean Sea. The site covers an area of about 8 km² (3.1 square miles).

Altun Ha was occupied for many centuries, from about 900 BCE to 1000 CE. Most of the information on Altun Ha comes from the Classic Period from about 400 CE to 900 CE, when the city was at its largest.
