    Sorry for the utterly 'newb' question but i'm travelling to a hostel in Ecuador soon, and me and my girlfriend plan to spend some evenings watching films. I know for a fact the TV we have in our room has not got an HDMI port, so what would be the best way to connect my MacBook Pro?

    Would it be to buy this?

    And then buy this?

    Any simpler/cheaper options would be appreciated. I just wanted to check i'm buying the right leads before i do. Thank you!!

    I'd go for something that has either composite or component video, if the TV doesn't have HDMI it's unlikely going to have VGA.

    Composite video or coax (TV converter) would be safest. Many basic TVs don't have Aux inputs.
