Graduate school in Puerto Rico?


I am looking into the planning program in Puerto Rico. The graduate program is accredited, but I am somewhat unsure of how a degree from Puerto Rico would be accepted in the US. The theory does touch on American and European planning methods, but a great focus nevertheless is placed on Puerto Rico.
I have an undergrad degree in economics and spanish and am currently living in Germany and have an internship in transporation planning. I want to attend graduate school abroad, and thought that Puerto Rico´s unique connection to the US,Latin America and Spain would be compelling, but am wondering if a program in the US would be more practical.
I would appreciate any help that could be offered! If there are any other international programs that could be recommended please let me know!
