It is a mistake to think that all ancient civilisations must have been contemporary to each other. Each of the civilisations you mention existed several thousand years after the supposed destruction of Atlantis. There seems to be little reason to believe that the Mayans, writing perhaps in Roman times, would have had any special knowledge of a distant civilisation which may have existed 10,000 years previously.

If different cultures have similar legends about lands being lost to the sea, and to war, that probably reflects how common such things are. Alternatively it may indicate some psychological need to believe in a past golden era. There is no reason to believe that the legends are connected.
