Plan a few days in the Galapagos Islands or the highlands
This is a great way to really get to know Ecuador. The Amazon is just one of the four Ecuadorian zones, so while you're visiting you oughta take advantage of the promontory Sierra mountains, that keep watch over all of Ecuador.
Active volcanoes push through the cloud forests and literally touch the sky. Since all trips to the Amazon necessarily pass through Quito, then you might as well plan for a few days of exploration of this beautifully preserved colonial city. Or extend your trip with a cruise or land-based tour to the Galapagos Islands.
Don't worry, though, we'll coordinate all the details.
