Zac Efron

Big Smiles in

Coke Capital of the World

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.

Por favor como peruana que soy, quisiera se retracten del titulo que dan a mi país, si ustedes quieren hablar cosas malas de Zac Efron, es su problema, pero no quiero que mi país tenga e título de "capital de la cocaína".
Estoy segura, que muchos de mis compatriotas se sienten en verdad indignados por este hecho.
Gracias.

Yeah they have coke leaf but you dont know anything about the culture there! coke leaf was used by the incas for a illness that is mountain sickness and relive the pain .. it isn't only a drug is used for medicine propuses specially in peruvian culture! .. some research is good specially is you are going to write about a country.

Plain rude. You ****ing ignorants don't have ANY right to talk like that about my country. Yes, it might be true; Peru is one of the countries that leads drug production but that doesn't make it the one who consumes it the most. Unlike your country, which is the one with most people consuming cocaine so get your facts straight and don't talk about my country that way EVER again. It's a shame you put up a stupid title just to get attention and at the same time, make us peruvian look bad, bastards.

Lo que deberia decir este tabloide, es que USA es el principal consumidor, y que por eso hay narcotraficantes, porque ellos crearon ese mercado, la hoja de coca es una planta medicinal usada desde tiempos ancestrales por las culturas andinas de Sudamerica, que existan drogadictos de USA que la usen de una manera distinta a la usada por los pobladores de Bolivia, Perú y Colombia, es distinto. USA le cambio el uso a esta planta medicinal, y ahora nos echan la culpa a los sudamericanos...USA es un pais de mierda

You retarded morons don't want to understand that most cocaine made in Peru and Colombia is sniffed by Americans moms, pops & teens, and very little is left for consume in the country. Plus, what does it have to do with the fact that the boy went to Machu Picchu with getting ****ed up? The guy is getting out of rehab and deserves a break. Silly reporting news these d-bags are used to publishing. I am done with reading this crack-head run tabloid!

Educate yourself. Coca leaf is been around for centuries. And if you go into an operation they give you coca. And we can call this country crack head capital of the world.
