What is the best kind of wood to use to build a deck?

I need to replace a deck at my house, I live in the very hot and humid south. The deck is over a patio so there is air circulation. I also live in a rural location, not the city so there is pasture land and trees surrounding. There would be no trees that provide shade though. It faces East/Northeast and the treeline does provide some protection from the rising sun and the house provides shade from the setting sun.
