Zac Efron

Big Smiles in

Coke Capital of the World

9/20/2013 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Zac Efron chose an interesting place to escape this month ... jetting off to the mountainous cocaine capital of the world ... but he wasn't there for the skiing.

The above photos were snapped on September 11th in Peru, showing Efron smiling with fans. Sources tell TMZ, Zac flew to the South American country for some mountain climbing, as well as to see the ancient Inca ruins of Machu Picchu.

He was also mobbed by screaming girls a week later at an airport in Cuzco, not far from Machu Picchu.

We're not saying he did or did not partake of the local crop while he was there, but it's still ironic.

TMZ broke the story ... Efron entered rehab twice this year for a serious cocaine problem, most recently in April.

Fun fact: according to the White House drug czar (yeah, we got one of those) Peru overtook Colombia as the world's biggest cocaine exporter in 2011. Now that's what we call winning.

I really couldn't care less about Zac Efron's situation right now but whoever wrote this article is an ******* . First, there's no skiing in Peru at all and second, I think it's stupid to name a country "the coke capital of the world", would it be ok if the world starts naming the US "the headquarters of drug investors"? I think not.

What a more ridiculous tabloid headline, not only you guys live out of other peoples' lives but you state things that are not correct. The city where you find most of the cocaine, not coke you dorkheads is in the jungle not Cuzco, you can ask Mick Jagger who went undercover to the PEruvian jungle for decades to enjoy wholesale price on his choice of drug.....

I believe that TMZ also would have to say that the main cocaine consumer is the USA, and not to insult to countries of South America… South Americans not we have fault of that their addict ones want to come to use an ancestral and medicinal plant, that are part of the culture of countries like Peru, Bolivia and Colombia, to drug ..... in the end the USA are the one who invented this drug and not them people of these countries ......

The fact that you come to Cusco-Peru a guy who consume cocaine, does not mean it is the capital of coca in the world, who do not care for their people to be more healthy and do not use marijuana, cocaine, crack, etc. . If the coke produced is because consumers like you are if they are the biggest in the world. Stop consuming and there will be coke. Sorry TMZ but is the true, SOB ....

Coke Capital of the World? Is because of information of this kind that too many idiots from the US end up in jail. Coming out of the airplane asking people left and right where they can find some. Coke Capital of the World? Maybe. Then you must have the title "Consumers Capital of the world" Just don't be stupid enough to try to bring some back to the US.
