Limited Access means a SharePoint user or group has permissions to an item or document or page or library within a Site, but does not have permissions to the entire Site.

This is normally used when you want to share content that resides within a site with users but not allow to browse the site.

See the following Microsoft TechNet article for further help on the subject.
