Installing vapor barrier

OK, this may seem like a dumb question but...

I know from reading that vapor barriers should be installed flush against the warm surface. My house is on raised pilings and the concern is more for A/C 8 months a year rather than heating. So how should the vapor barrier be installed? Same way as for more northern climates? Flush against the subfloor (which in this case would be the cooled surface?)

It goes toward the conditioned surface not the heated surface.
Which would mean heat and cooling.
