    180 is normal operating temp, so yes, 210 is pretty high. Check your thermostat and make sure you got good coolant in it.

    the thermostat is generaly a 180 degree for most hondas so somewhere between 180-195 is where you should be running. does it get hot when your driving at speed? if not make sure your fans working. also are you using a stock radiator? if its old it could be plugged, if you spray it down with water when its hot and let it run you can see its evaporating off the radiator evenly (if some passages are plugged the water will not evap off of them as fast as the flowing passages)
