Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens’ Secret Brazilian Getaway

Zac Efron, 21, and Vanessa Hudgens, 20, enjoyed a South American getaway on an island off the coast of Angra dos Reis, Brazil, over the weekend.

High School Musical’s real-life couple attempted to keep the vacation hush-hush, as they were shielded from looky-loos (and paps) with the aid of giant red beach umbrellas during their stay.

The pair were said to be the guests of Brazilian magazine Caras, according to Splash News.

What could possibly be the reason for all of the secrecy?

Well, Hudgens and Efron tend to get all sorts of cozy on the beach when they’re all by their lonesome, and probably regret that these naughty pictures got out from their 4th of July vacation in Turks and Caicos this past summer.

The twosome also were at the forefront of a huge media blitz in Japan recently for the last HSM film, and could probably use some privacy during their downtime.

Plus, Vanessa might not want Megan Fox tracking them down.
